Let me put up some titles of songs that had amazing basslines but are largely overlooked or simply forgotten. "Ooh to be ah" Kajagoogoo. Bassist: Nick Beggs. Currently Nick Beggs is with the John Paul Jones band where he plays a Chapman stick but on this track of his old band he showcases what an amazing player he was in the eighties. He slaps amazingly fast runs and triads during the song's intro. "Wham Rap" Wham Bassist: Miron Dove (if I have his name wrong please correct me.) This one has one of the funkiest basslines of the entire decade, try to imagine having Rocco Prestia and Bernard Edwards combined into one player... "Good thing" Fine Young Cannibals Bassist: David Steele Nothing too fancy about the bass playing on this record but it's just such an instant "feel good" funny hopping around bassline. "Without you" David Bowie Bassist: Bernard Edwards This is the only track of Bowie's "Let's dance" album on which Edwards played but what a track it was; Edwards provides backbeats and he does just that so effordlessly, and then there's also that minimalistic solos provided by the equally amazing Stevie Ray Vaughan. "Sweet love" Anita Baker Bassist: "Ready" Freddy Washington. Do I really need to explain that one? feel free to share or add more.
