    A lot of great ones have been mentioned already...

    I'd like to throw another vote out for "Come Together" (and just about anything McCartney).

    Also, when you hear the first four beats of "Runnin' With The Devil," you know who and what it is. That's a great bass riff. Fuck Dave Mustaine.

    Not that it's particularly difficult to play but, the bass line to "Penny Lane" is just flawless!!! One of the most well structured and melodic pieces I have ever heard in my life!

    Also, anything Steve Harris plays is normally beyond human...

    Forgot a few more...

    Superstition/Higher Ground- Stevie Wonder

    Get down tonight- K.C. and the Sunshine band

    Y.M.C.A.- Village People (No, I'm not kidding...)

    Dream Weaver- Gary Wright

    Metropolis (Part 1)- Dream Theatre

    Anything from Iron Maiden

    Billy Sheehan- Take your pick.....

    And for some reason, even though it's a pretty simple walking bass line, I love "The Long Run" by the Eagles.

    Love lies bleeding by Elton John- heard this on the radio the other day and really listened to the bass , it really drives the song.

    Yeah, apparently a sense that failed him when the thought of a pre-nup ran through his head just before proposing his second marriage......Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Yes...I used to work at a music store with a guitar/bass teacher who would teach his beginner bass students that riff.
