Also, I can't stress how funky Louis Johnson (of the Brothers Johnson) lays it down on Michael Jackson's album Off the Wall - un-funking-believable.

One can never go wrong with a good James Brown bassline. In my opinion he did his best work when he had the original J.B.s backing him up, which featured Bootsy Collins on bass, but he always had good basslines.

Some good ones that I enjoy:

Funky President
Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine
Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose
Super Bad
I Got You (I Feel Good) is probably one of the easiest of the bunch but it's still fun as hell.
