Killer Cars: pretty MUCH every other song...
OldManDownDRoad: 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?Moulding's work was consistently excellent and contributed to Andy's success as a songwriter - try to imagine "The Mayor of Simpleton" without that bass line.And Edwin is astonishing live. Hit YouTube for the live version of "Strip the Soul - .3" from Tilburg. Of course, he has the advantage of working with Gavin Harrison and that's the most potent backbeat team working today.As for TFA, I was amazed that NME would publish someone with such a limited knowledge of music. I kept thinking "No James Jamerson? No Carole Kay? No Jaco Pastorious? No Rocco Prestia, the king of the 16th note?"
Sandinista81: Come As You Are?!What a sad excuse for a music journalist.KILLING JOKE DID IT FIRST
Thats_Not_My_Baby: Can someone please explain to me what made the bass guitar played on the Violent Femmes first album sound so unique/odd?
rcf1105: Paul McCartney had some pretty rocking bass lines back in the day - Paperback Writer comes to mind immediately.
Crewmannumber6: Link Hey Bulldog
Click Click D'oh: No Rime of the Ancient Mariner yet? Oh for shame Fark, for shame.
TypoFlyspray: The Obvious:Rush: Red Barchetta (Or really anything at all)Maiden: Number of the Beast (Or Phantom of the Opera, Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Aces High, Powerslave, or anything else...)Zeppelin: Dazed and ConfusedCream: Badge (Sunshine of Your Love and White Room, both perfectly acceptable as well.)Tool: Sober the PotYes: RoundaboutRHPC: Higher Ground (My particular favorite - so many others as good)Pink Floyd: Pigs (3 Different Ones), Meddle (Gilmour is so good people forget Waters plays the fark out of the bass)
DisplacedTexan: Came in to see if, in nearly 500 comments, anyone showed some love to Peter Steele. Leaving disappointed...
IwasKloot: Upright bass kills it on Diana Krall's cover of Tom Waits' Temptation (pops)
dfacto: Nice thread, discovered some songs I didn't know.Filter - Hey Man Nice Shot Nobody mentioned this?
JoePiscopoJr.: Blue Oyster Cult- Shooting Shark......Devo- Mongoloid
NutznGum: No theme song from Barney Miller?
dg41: NutznGum: No theme song from Barney Miller?Travesty.
Heineken Skywalker: Weekapaug
coffee fiend: The typical Farker on bassists and basslines: Blah, blah, blah... Jaco Pastorius; blah, blah, blah./your favorite band/bassist/musical genius sucks//mine doesn't///slashies
Godscrack: Sober by Tool. Their first bass player, Paul D'Amor contributed some wicked chops to their first couple records.
TypoFlyspray: The Beatles - Taxman, Come Together, Paperback Writer, She Came in Through The Bathroom Window. (Sir Paul? Shut up and lay down a bassline, sir. It's what you really do best.)
EyeballKid: fruitloop: Late to the party, so I'll throw in Poison - Unskinny BopSimplest. Bassline. Ever.Simple? Michael Anthony stares off into space, scratches his head, unable to grasp the intricate nuances by Mr. Rocket(t?) and opts for "Runnin' with the Devil."
jso2897: Charlie Mingus Tonight at Noon
darch: This thread is coming close to restoring my faith in humanity. Not just great bass selections, but some EPIC music that crosses almost ALL musical boundries.Cheers Farkers!
