    Hi everyone,

    I've been trying to figure out what song is this bassline from. I thought it was Cameo, Slave, or other bands from similar period of time.

    This is driving me insane!!! Help please. I would really appreciate it. Thanks!!

    Um, I finished watching your video, which led into Surfrajettes @ Norman's Rare Guitars, and you were asking what?

    Wasn't "Clack, Clack, Buzz" a big hit in the 90s? I seem to remember hearing a lot of it. ;)

    This is still killing me. Yeah the recording quality is not the best, but it's enough to hear the bassline. Thanks!

    Last night I thought of this song too, but I don't think this song is exactly it. Very close though, thanks!

    Sounds a bit like "She's Strange" by Cameo. Actually Cameo made another song with a similar bass line that might actually be it, but I cannot remember the name of that song.

  13. My computer speakers suck, but from what I can hear it's slightly reminiscent of the intro of Blame it on the Boogie by Jackson 5:

    As the responses so far show, I would say that it's the bass line to about 10 or 20 different funk tunes!
