OPINION: Top 10 Bass Guitar Songs

By Or Kynan

Let us try to get a best bass guitar songs list among the hundreds of wonderful songs that we have heard over the years. The list, though not inclusive of all the legends, is an attempt at listing out the top 10 bass guitar songs.

The number ten song on the list is Break on Through by the Doors and it is quite a wonderful way that the bass is used in this song that makes it such a hot favorite. Higher up on the list at number nine is Boris the Spider by The Who.

At number eight we have Whipping Post by the Allman Brothers band and at number seven we have Roundabout by Yes. Dazed and Confused by Led Zeppelin is at number six and at number five we have The Real Me by The Who. Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple is at number four and at three we have Another One Bites the Dust by Queen.

At number two we have My Generation by The Who and the topmost position is occupied by Money by Pink Floyd.

There could be a number of people who will be annoyed that the list does not include the legends of bass guitar like the Beatles, The Eagles, Dire Straits, Black Sabbath, Taylor Swift, Guns N Roses, Metallica and many more wonderful, talented and gifted legends who had made the bass guitar a magical instrument.

The list as stated earlier is not a complete list and there are bound to be arguments and counter arguments about the validity of an inclusion. The list is just a starting point where beginners or novices in guitar playing can listen to and learn the wonderful skills from the legends who have strummed the guitars to perfection to bring out the best music that we had all loved and cherished.

Along with the list of top 10 bass guitar songs we must also have a list of top 10 bass players who have immortalized this humble instrument into a great piece of art. This list would again not be a complete list but just an attempt to identify the legends of guitar who have given us such wonderful music.

Paul McCartney from the Beatles was considered a legend that used to play the bass to perfection and most people thought that his fingers were magical when they touched the guitar and some of the most memorable bass guitar songs have come from this great man. Others on the list would include Pino Palladino, Flea, Jaco Pastorius, Mark King, Tony Levin, Geddy Lee, Bootsy Collins, Charlie Haden and John Paul Jones.
