What songs hit you as "bass" songs, and which don't?

    I play guitar and bass, so in certain songs I am drawn to one or the other in the mix. In Stax stuff, I always hear Cropper—not Dunn (sacrilege, I know). Conversely, in most of Stevie Wonder's stuff I only hear Jamerson, Babbitt, or Watts—not so much the other musicians.

    Anyone else experience this? If so, which songs do you most prominently hear the bass, or vice versa?
