    For you saxophone fans, if you listen to the 12" remix of Maneater, they remove the echoed sax of the original version and you can hear it straight, without the "dual" effect. Pretty cool, even for a cheesey 80s classic.
    I always like "You Make My Dreams Come True." Just octaves in the bass but it cooks pretty nicely.

    Phish - Split Open and Melt (Mike Gordon)
    Gil Scott Heron - The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (Ron Carter, I think)

    Great choice. Incubus used to have some very funky bass lines...

Geils Band opened) on Boston Common in the early seventies just weeks before Duane Allman died. With two lead guitars and two drummers, they were an awesome band in those days. They went down hill after that and became two commercial. I saw them years later in Watkins Glenn with The Grateful Dead and The Band. They just were not near the same band.

    Those lists are crap and extremely biased towards classic rock IMHO...

    Dunno if I mentioned this one but it just came to me: "Penthouse and Pavement" by Heaven 17. Rocking bassline for 80's Brit pop.

    Re: Great bass lines

    The bass line in "Little Green Bag" by George Baker is badass.

    This song is better known for being in the movie Reservoir Dogs by Tarantino. Cool song.

    True but it is interesting to see how some of them are viewed. Some of them are obvious, but some are ones I hadn't heard in a long time. Would love to see the same 'type' of list for a R&B, or Jazz, etc...
