     You can't have a bass playlist without the best friggen bass song ever recorded.. and that is "Rain" by The Beatles. You HAVE to add this song, I don't care what else gets added but this one has to go in the lineup. If you think I'm wrong about this, then PLEASE YouTube it & wait around for the 2 minute & 20 second mark, you'll see what I mean. You just can't touch Paul McCartney, he's in a class all on his own. And here are some more suggestions of some truly kick ass bass songs.. (in my opinion that is) :)

    1. "Rain" The Beatles

    2. "Taxman" The Beatles

    3."Come Together" The Beatles

    1. "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" The Beatles

    2. "Hey Bulldog" The Beatles

    6 "Nineteen Hundred Eighty Five" Paul McCartney & Wings

    1. "Hi Hi Hi" Paul McCartney & Wings

    2. "Junior's Farm" Paul McCartney & Wings

    3. "Arrow Thru Me" Paul McCartney & Wings

    4. "Silly Love Songs" Paul McCartney & Wings
