    Blue Monday.
    Come Together (Beatles).
    It Must Be a Camel. (Perhaps not so famous but a favourite at the Towers)
    Hey Bulldog. (The hummable bit is the intro/bridge but McCartney is amazing throughout)

    I can’t think of any kind of bass line to Wuthering Heights! I think Yours Is No Disgrace would be a better Yes example.

    More recently, In Any Tongue, Dave Gilmour. This properly shakes my house, as it shook my stomach at the gig. Unpleasant as always with those bass lines.

    Something, one of Paul's best.

    'Some people are crazy' by John Martyn, lovely bass playing by John Giblin. Also anything by Mick Karn.
