Walk on the Wild Side

This song has one of the greatest bass loops ever recorded. First, because you can recognize the song on the first bass note being plucked. Second for the distinctive sound of the bass (keep reading for a fun fact on that). Third because the bass line is so captivating.

Fun fact: The bass line for this song atually combines two bass recordings: one played on a double bass, another played on a fretless bass guitar (source: Wikipedia).
