I think the bassline in Dear Prudence is actually very good, and in Yellow Submarine .

 The Beatles; 

 Paul John George Ringo and me .. Shannon! 

Favourite Beatle;

James Paul McCartney.

Aside from the usual suspects, Hey Bulldog , Taxman , Dear Prudence , Something etc.. I really like the bass in Cry, Baby, Cry and Glass Onion .They're surprisingly complex

Surprised nobody mentioned “While My Guitar Gently Weeps “, fantastic bassline. “Good Morning,Good Morning” also deserves a shout for it's pummelling runs.paul-mccartney

I think we now have 2 of these bassline threads going but this is the original?

Yeah, but this one is “Beatle” bassline, not “McCartney”!

So, anybody who wants to vote for “Old Brown Shoe ” or “Helter Skelter ” or one of the other half-dozen non-Paul bass parts can do so right here.

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

Every single bassline in the history of every single song of all time that wasn't played by Paul McCartney ? I'm gonna be here all day… a-hard-days-night-george-10

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

I remember reading that George played the bass on a song because John was ill and Paul was playing the piano on the first track of a song. I can't find which one it was, but accidentally found that George played bass on All Together Now too.

I told her I didn’t

Oh yes, I feel like a troll. But is it just me, or do I find Paul's mouth bass in I Will strangely appealing?
