Mine is Aeroplane_
Versatile verses & strong 1 chord slapping choruses
I was really big into Type O Negative, Rush, Led Zep, Greatful Dead, and Phish when I got into playing bass.
I can't recall any song I heard that made me say "damn, I wanna play the bass."
Its gotta be Bro Hymn by pennywise
the a capella version of "tommy the cat"
The God That Failed.
It's not hard or anything, but it sounds really cool.
Had to be "My Generation" by The Who..
"If you want me to stay," by Sly Stone, er, Larry Graham. Blew my mind when I first heard it, haven't been the same since.
"Ramble On" - Led Zeppelin
I felt I always wanted to play bass, even before I started playing guitar as my main instrument. Just now do I realize how much more bass is to me than guitar. I like both, don't get me wrong, but bass is the way.
At the time, some Metallica, Nirvana, and Allman Brothers. Yeah, what a clash with that 60s rock and 90s grunge...
I don't think that's Larry Graham. Larry Graham left Sly and the Family Stone before the recording of the album "Fresh," which that track is on. I'm pretty sure it's either Sly, himself, or Rusty Allen on bass.
I was a sophmore in high school and I was hanging out, drinking beer and partaking in other illegal activities that involved controlled substances, at a friends house who's parents were away. Someone popped in a tape of Iron Maiden's "Number of the Beast" and I sat down and just focused on the bass from beginning to end. I had some other experiences where I said to myself, "I should start playing the bass," which involved seeing a live band, but that was the first time I heard a recording and was totally captured by the bass playing...but cetainly not the last.
Had to be "Cryptical Envelopment", now commonly known as "The Other One" by the Grateful Dead. I still play it today with as much enthusiasim as I did when I first learned it.
Hatian Fight Song by Charles Mingus. If you specifically want bass guitar then I'd say Tommy the Cat by Primus.
Wasted Years - by Iron Maiden I had been listening to Iron Maiden and really listening to Steve Harris when this song came out. It was sort of a timing thing, but it really got me fired up to play bass instead of just hold a bass and follow. I know it may not be the best song in the world to a lot of Maiden fans even, but somehow it really clicked for me.
Back when I was a kid, "Cosmic Slop" by Funkadelic made me worship the instrument, and "High Times" by Jamiroquai pushed me over the edge. I procrastinated for almost 20 years before picking up the bass.
For me it was Jack Bruce playing on Cream's version of Crossroads. I'd grown up listening to it but then a friend in a band pointed out the bassline and I realised that bass was the way to go.
"Long Distance Runaround" by Yes.
"Carousel" by (dare I say it)...blink-182. That was in the blink days. But the intro is a very good bass part. 'Nuff said.
The first song I ever heard slap/pop in. With a friend like You by Reba Rambo.
The Eagles - Hotel california, RHCP - Soul to squeeze and Jamiroquai - Too young to die.
