Spiritual Carpool Karaoke with Paul McCartney and James Corden

Spiritual Carpool Karaoke with Paul McCartney and James Corden

James Corden of The Late Late Show with James Corden spent a day with Paul McCartney visiting hisJames Corden and Paul McCartney Singing childhood home where he wrote music with John Lennon. They also sang some Beatles songs together, including “Let it Be.” 

JAMES: Your music is so full of positivity and joy and a message of love and togetherness. I feel like it’s more relevant today than it’s ever been.

PAUL: That’s one of the strange things – we expected to last ten years, but it just keeps going on and on and on. And it keeps being relevant. 

JAMES: Yeah!

PAUL: I had a dream in the 60’s where my mom, who died, came to me in the dream and was reassuring me, saying: “It’s going to be okay. Just let it be.” And I went… (sighs heavily) I felt so sort of great, like, “Boy, it’s going to be great, you know?” She gave me the positive word. So, I woke up and said, “What was that? She sang ‘Let it be.’” I’d never heard that; it was kind of good. So, I wrote the song “Let it Be” with positivity. 

JAMES: That’s the most beautiful story I’ve ever heard. (They both take a minute, undeniable emotion filling the space. Then “Let it Be” comes on the speakers, and they sing it together with a lot of feeling. At the end, James wipes a tear from his eye.) Oh man. It got me emotional there. 

PAUL: It did, it did.

JAMES: I didn’t feel it coming. It’s too much for me. I didn’t see it coming ‘round the corner (laughs and wipes more tears) 

PAUL: That’s great man, the power of music. It’s weird, isn’t it, how it can do that to you?

JAMES: Well, I can remember my grandad – who’s a musician – and my dad sitting me down, saying, “We’re going to play you the best song you’ve ever heard. And I remember them playing me that

PAUL: Really? 

JAMES: If my grandad was here right now, he’d get an absolute kick out of this.

PAUL: (looking straight ahead) He is. 

“Let It Be”

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be

And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

And when the broken-hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer
Let it be

For though they may be parted there is
Still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Yeah, there will be an answer
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow
Let it be

I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
There will be an answer
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be
