At first, I was planning to construct a montage of songs with memorable bass lines – there are hundreds of them. However, after listening to a few, I realized that they are overlaid with so much instrumentation that the songs were always instantly recognizable. Therefore, in order to give you a bit of a challenge, I decided to compile a list of tunes that contained isolated bass riffs. There are ten well-known pop and rock songs in this montage, from the 1960s to the 1990s.
As usual, there two different montages: an easy version with one second of silence between each drumbeat sample, and a more challenging version with no silence between the samples.
