Cheesy Song -- Great Bassline!!!

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by GrooveWarrior, Feb 24, 2005.

  1. What songs are cheesy but have a great bassline?

    Alex Al's bassline on Jimmy Sommers' song "This Weekend" on the Lovelife album is about the fattest tone I have ever heard, and is a GROOVE! The song is lame though. It's sex sax junk. But still check out the tune.

    Wings' "Silly Love Songs". Though I personally think the song is brilliant, some would consider it "Cheezy" I'm sure. No bass player in their right mind would consider the bass line lame.

    "Open the door, get on the floor. Everybody walk the dinosaur"

    As much as I lovvvvvve Chic and The Brothers Johnson, a lot of there stuff falls into that category.

    Anybody wanna discuss any particular Victor Wooten compositions? :bag: :bassist: :bag:
