    I'm looking for nominations in the category of really cool songs that are also easy to play for the beginner bassist.

    My nomination is:
    Earth Wind and Fire - Let's Groove. There is just one easy riff and another easy lick at the bridge. Killer song too, brings back many happy memories from 1981.

    Please do not nominate:
    My Lovely Horse by Father Ted Crilly and Father Dougal Maguire. Although this song has just one note, it is very difficult to get to the end - this video will explain...

    Fairly easy songs for a beginner and not too boring either.
