It's not something that you always notice (particularly if you've got a shit stereo or are one of those annoying fuckers that play shit tunes really loud and tinny on your mobile phone, on a bus, for fuck's sakes) but there's nothing quite as satisfying as a really, really fucking good bassline to groove along to on a summer's day. Unfortunately, bass players aren't always the sexiest or most extrovert of people, and six-string guitars tend to look much cooler, and as a result bass players tend to be overlooked and ignored. So I'd like to take some time on this sacred, hungover Friday to pay lip/finger-service to the greatest basslines of all time.
My current top five are:
1. Thelma Houston - Don't Leave Me This Way
2. The Smiths - Barbarism Begins At Home
3. Chic - Good Times
4. Ned's Atomic Dustbin - Throwing Things
5. Stone Roses - I Am The Resurrection
What are yours? Eh? TELLMEIT'SFRIDAYIMUSTKNOW.
