LEMON SONG-LED ZEPPELIN!!!
Oh yeah, baby! That one whipped my ass for the longest time when I was a misguided youth.

 

So many killer basslines mentioned already, so I'm going back into my youth give a vote for "Tighten Up" by Archie Bell and the Drells. I think that was the first bassline I got down when I was just learning. I loves the funk!

 

Also loved alot of Chicago and Blood, Sweat and Tears basslines. Grand Funk, too. The bass solo in "Get Ready" was cool, too.

 

Damn it...so many basslines, so little memory left due to drugs. :)

Bassplayers aren't paid to play fast, they're paid to listen fast.

And no-one's mentioned Duran Duran's "Rio". I love that one.

 

earljam mentioned "Spanish Moon", by Little Feat. I can agree with that. Kenny Gradney rocks.

**Standard Disclaimer** Ya gotta watch da Ouizel, as he often posts complete and utter BS. In this case however, He just might be right. Eagles may soar, but Ouizels don't get sucked into jet engines.

Did Grand Funk have a song called "Get Ready", or are you thinking of the band Rare Earth? I'm not too hip on my Grand Funk Railroad, ya dig?
