    C'mon folks what B line is THE one?

    The one that makes you feel real sexy and want to get it on?

    Inner City Blues by Marvin Gaye (B line J.Jamerson) gets my vote.
  2. theme from "Barney Miller"...

    "Everybody Here Wants You" by Jeff Buckley (bass by Mick Grondahl). Definitely sexy. Sade's bassist also comes up with some very sexy lines.

  6. Great bassline but it wasn't James Jamerson who played on that one (and no, it's not Carol Kaye;) ), it's Bob Babbitt.

    For me, it has to be FLea's line in "Soul to Squeeze".

    Yeah, I said Flea.:p
  8. Ascension (Don't Ever Wonder) by Maxwell...
    Not sure who actually played the bass on that one. There are several bassists listed in the liner notes including Sade's Stuart Matthewman.

    If you haven't heard... the Bass line in "Pump It Up" by Elvis Costello and the Attractions.

    I don't recall the bass players name, but he is so cool. Not only on "Pump It Up" but on so many EC tunes!

    "I Touch Myself" by The Divinyls with Christina Amphlette's vocals just
    "make you so haaawwwny" ...great track and super-seductive bass.

    But for fun, that old porno bass cracks me up! Check out this track (speakers on?) with Ron Jeremy at knocking on the door as the "plumber." The track is titled "Laying Pipe (JimK, are you there?) -

    Amazing bass line! I wholeheartedly agree. The bass player in question in Bruce Thomas, a fantastic bass player.

    Define 'Sexy'

    From my own erotic expirience, I would have to say something by Opeth, perhaps 'Advent.' Then, again, I am using the fact that my girlfriend and I listen to 'peth quite often while we are doing certain things as my sole reference when making my decision.

    Anything written by Fieldy
  20. Anything played by Talena Atfield :D (former bassist for KiTTiE) SEXIEST :eek: bassist ever.

    seriously though what gets me wanting to have sex is either something from Kittie or the end of a Black Sabbath song like Iron Man, War Pigs, or Black Sabbath
