Re:Classic bass lines..... 14 Years, 4 Months ago  
Can't believe nobody's mentioned I Want You Back by the Jackson 5 yet

Paul McCartney's bass playing was obviously never less then brilliant and innovative, a personal faves is Getting Better

The Lemon Song by Led Zep

Perfect Kiss by New Order for a totally different approach to bass playing

"I Want You Back", is a classic, Top Cat , well done, it is also extremely hard to play because of the rests written into it, and it also doesnt sound overtly musical, due to its commerciality.
I played this particular beast of a line with a soul band, and we spent quite a long time sticking it together with the brass section.
Here`s another..."Jamaica Funk" Tom Browne.

"Funkin' for Jamaica". Ha! We probably have the same dusty vinyls hanging around the house.

One I forgot is "Disco Inferno", with the bass played by Stan Wade.

"Disco Inferno" is a class act, nice one!

Billie Jean by Michael Jackson for me. One of those that you know when it comes up what the song is and it is perfect for writing.
On another level i also like the Darkness by the Police a nice mix of reggae and jazz.
Also sorry JK Duran Duran had some very good basslines:
The Reflex, Notorious a couple of my favourites.

Aha!

"Peaches" by the Stranglers!

A theme tune and advertising campaign in eight classic bars in itself!
