"Sexiest" basslines.

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by CosmoReverb, Aug 21, 2007.


  1. Doesn't have to be technical, doesn't have to be catchy, doesn't even need to be played on a bass per se. Just a bassline that simply feels "sexy"

    I'll start with "Use Me" by Bill Withers.

    (I gave a stripper a $100 tip once just because she danced to that song.)
     
  2. "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson

    The bassline to "No Ordinary Love" - Sade

    Bassist: Paul Denman

    Most of the basslines in her songs are simple and sexy as hell!
     
  4. Fever - Peggy Lee
     
  5. Jeff Martinez

    Ha! That was my first thought, too!

    Paul Denman's work on "Paradise" by Sade is sexy.

    I'd also throw "It is a crime" in there.

    Anthony Jackson's line on Chaka Khan "So Naughty" is sexy in a naughty kinda way!

    There are so many (10 that I could list without blinking), I just placed one in there hoping that others would discover the rest on their own! :hyper:

    To paraphrase Spinal Tap... "SexY, not SexIST"!



    (And, is "Superstition" sexy? Funky definately, but... sexy?)
