Another One Bites the Dust
Detroit Rock City by Kiss. Walking On The Moon by The Police. Simple, but great bass lines.
Riders On The Storm. The Doors never had a regular bass player, but I believe Jerry Scheff is credited with this one. Its the hook that defines the song and all the other elements are built to support it. Instantly recognizable and to my recollection, its not repeated anywhere.
My Generation by The WhoPapa Was A Rolling Stone by The TemptationsThe Sun King by The Beatles
Love this question cause i LOVE bass!Sunshine of Your Love, CreamSweet Emotion, AerosmithCrazt Train, OzzyTom Sawyer, RushUnder Pressure, Queen
All great selections. I would add Led Zeppelin's Dazed and Confused and Ramble On. JPJ was so underrated as an all around musician.I agree with Johnny that the hook sets you up for a great song.Barbara, I cant believe I didnt include anything by Cream :-) Jack Bruce is a bass line God!
Two that immediately spring to mind are:1. Badge - Cream2. Virtually anything by Bernard Edwards and Chic!
Queen's Keep Passing The Open Windows, A Kind of Magic, The Invisible Man and yeah Under Pressure..i might add more..
I would add any Hot Tuna with Jack on that bass guitar.
I only recently discovered your wonderful blog here and had to add a bass line to those already listed:I Want You Back - Jackson 5Played by Motown L.A. regular Wilton Felder. That bass line gets stuck in my head for days at a time.
