Born to Die: Going back a bit further:[www.all-music-sheets.com image 500x658]YouTube
Erbo: List is FAIL without The Smithereens' "Blood and Roses."
Ishkur: How can you have a list about basslines and not include one single funk track!?What the fark is wrong with you?
Bhasayate: The Police "Mosaka Tanga"
Equilibrist: acefox1: The ommission of Entwistle from that list tells me this list is totally pants-on-the-head-retarded.Nothing beats the bass lines in "My Generation." You can add his sound on Baba O'Reilly, Real Me, Bargain, Behind Blue Eyes, Goin Mobile and most other Who songs while you're at it.Alright, I read the thread a bit. Next time you get a chance, play Quadrophenia and ignore Roger. You will hear the most amazing bass lines. I give a copy of this album to aspiring bass players I run across. 2 so far
bwilson27: Stayin Alive, the BeeGees.
MensRea: No "Peace Sells"?/fail

weiner dog: One of the Millions - XTC, written by Colin Moulding. Moulding was fantastic at marrying melodic lines with supportive grooves. King for a Day would be another good example.
kth: frostus: The Cure - Fascination StreetThat is a fine bass line.as is this one.I didn't realize until I was an adult how good Duran Duran actually was.
Madbassist1: Hell with it, Either of Link if nothing else other than the bridges.
stupiddream: weiner dog: One of the Millions - XTC, written by Colin Moulding. Moulding was fantastic at marrying melodic lines with supportive grooves. King for a Day would be another good example.This? Colin is very underrated IMHO.And speaking of Colins; how about P-Tree's Colin Edwin and .3 from In Abstentia?
Godscrack: Not rock, but listen worthyEverybody Dance (intro) - Chic. Bass by Bernard EdwardsThank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin) - Sly and the Family StoneBernadette The Four Tops. Bass by Carol Kaye
fruitloop: Late to the party, so I'll throw in Poison - Unskinny BopSimplest. Bassline. Ever.
MagicBus: It's been posted several times already but deserves to be mentioned again:"The Real Me" -- John Entwistle -- essentially playing lead guitar on the bass
