Queen Songs With the Coolest Bass

Bass lines, solos...Anything.
John Deacon is the shy one of the group but still did great on the bass-- better than most. Here is a list of his best "Shining moments", if you will. There is a lot of songs from Hot Space because this is the album where Deacy is really noticed. KYO!

The Top Ten

1 Another One Bites the Dust

The line in this song is Great, and of course, it makes the song what it is. It was amazing and one of the most memorable.

I like decon style.

2 Under Pressure

This one shouts out to me just a bit more than Another One Bites The Dust. Very interesting, and of course written by himself!

3 Crazy Little Thing Called Love

One of my favorite basslines ever. I really love not only this bassline but John Deacons whole bass technique

John Deacons masterpiece. - Userguy44

This song is very different without the bass, it basically makes the song, it's really groovy and still keeps the beat amazingly, I'd say it's one of the greatest basslines to be honest, John Deacon is a very criminally underrated musician, he could play super complex things while sticking to the core of the song and he knew what was good for certain songs, especially here, incredible bass line, I can listen to just the bassline and still think its an amazing song!

Really stands out for me. Great, catchy, keeps the groove, and just makes you wanna get up and dance!

8 Dragon Attack

Fun to play, catchy! Great bass riff to practice and a joy to hear!

One of the most obsessive bassline I've ever heard, one of my favorites

Top 5 for me, with another one bites the dust, under pressure, breakthru and I want to break free

This should easily be in top 10!

10 Liar

It's small, but it's still as great as any Brian May solo. Short sweet and nice. You have to love it!

13 Body Language

One of his grooviest, easy and fun to learn (even though I don't play bass, I would like to. ) Nice and smooth.

14 Staying Power

One of my favorites

Very recognizable. See what he's got! Is it real, is it real?

15 The Show Must Go On - Queen UListen to Sample
16 Don't Stop Me Now

This song definitely has to get a vote for its bassline. The bassline blends perfectly with the rhythm and gives it the feeling of the fast tempo, and the fast eighth notes are a joy to hear.

18 We Will Rock You - Queen

This song has no bass. - Userguy44

19 One Vision

During the Magic tour, when they play One Vision at Wembley, the most know concert other than Live Aid, you can see Brian May and Deacy have a guitar show off contest... Sort of. Deacy is doing this sick (in a good way) thing on his bass that can't be replicated in anyway. Don't worry; you'll see.

23 Flash

And now the crescendo, as V said. (V for Vendetta. ) Deacy and Roger started it and then the piano came in. Deacy did great in this song as well as all the others.
