Heard this on the radio the other day and forgot how great the bass line is, as simple as it is.



Any others you all can think of?

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

That's not a bass guitar you hear--it's a regular guitar played through a pedal that drops it an octave.

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

The O'Jays For the Love of Money has a pretty good bass line and this one has been reused and sampled many times.

How could I forget!

That was kind-of-consciously inspired by one of the most recognizable and sampled basslines in history:



And while we're at that, here's another Bernard Edwards' top notch bassline:



Another great bassline, by T.M. Stevens:



Always thought that Duran Duran's Rio had a great bassline (and you can tell John Taylor was a Bernard Edwards fan – he also inherited his Stingray bass!). Verse, chorus and and two-parts bridge are all very nice and distinctive:



And my, how I love these John Entwistle's isolated bass tracks (starts at 1:12):

That video is so 80s it hurts...

Also, wasn't that originally a Stevie Wonder song? Bass isn't so prominent in that one of course.
