    I would say Tommy Shannon on couldn't stand the weather(SRV), John Paul Jones on how many more times (Zep) and Krist Novoselic on sliver (Nirvana)... Obviously loads more, but that's what came to my head just now :) Suggestions?

    Bernard Edwards bassline on Good Times just gets stuck in my head and nothing I do will get it out. That's catchy as hell!

    Paul McCartney's "Silly Love Songs" has a pretty catchy bassline.

    ohhh, good one. heard that song two weeks ago and it's been in my head ever sense. great bass line. i actually pulled out some SRV the other night to play along with because of that bass line. sadly that cd wasn't loaded on my ipod, but there were still some good ones to groove to.

    i think rather than "contributing" to this thread... i'll just sit back, read and learn. good thread.

    No particular order:

    The Joker - Steve Miller Band
    Santeria - Sublime
    We Gotta' Get Out of This Place - The Animals
    Come Together - Beatles
    My Girl - Temptations
    St. James Infirmary - Bobby "Blue" Bland
    Another One Bites The Dust - Queen
    Call The Doctor - J.J. Cale

    I'm not trying to trump Duff Beer and Natrix. I'm agreeing with them, then adding some others.
