If your slapping skills are good try Hair - Larry Graham. You could also do something like Jaco's Chicken and improv on it to your heart's delight.

Lenny Kravits's Fly Away is a doddle but always popular,
especally slapped which is also easy to do.

Yes that's really the best thing to play a teenage audience who for the majority of them will have no clue about classical music.

Sorry, this thread didn't feel complete without someone recommending Anesthesia. =P

Well anesthesia will be excellent if you want to showcase your abilities. but personally I don't like it. I second The Chicken as sinan said, also please give us a genre. And I recomend the stu hamm bass solo, the part of the chords. Beautiful.

How about "Maxwell Murder" from Rancid. Its got a cool solo in it. Altough its kinda hard if your not expierenced enough.

the ultimate bass is on a song by the jazz fusion group "the yellow jackets" i don't remember the title, but do some research....it's like the bass is carrying the melody of a solo trumpet.

Ornithology - Charlie Parker. The melody, not the bass part.

a hearty slap on the back and a cookie and a half to anyone who can tell me why it's called Ornithology!

Charlie "The Bird" Parker. He always called things names of things related to birds, pretty weird if you ask me.

Those are both good, but Get Up and Jump by the same band is also good, but its pretty hard.

Yes! The yellow jackets have an incredible bassist. Though it might be slightly to advanced for the thread-starter.

Play Les Claypool's The Awakening.

You know, you can write your own?
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

He asked for a song to play, not for people telling him to write his own. For all you know he might not be so great at writing impressive lines. I know I'm not.

As for the topic, I'd go with Pulling Teeth. It impresses.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.
