Ah, Searcy beat me to it...... theme from Barney Miller!

 

Years ago I played in a band where EVERYNIGHT, when the bass player first fired up his rig, he would play the bass line to Barney Miller and then "Money". Actually got to be kind of a joke amongst the rest of the band, and definitely annoying, although probably no worse than us guitar players wanging an "E" chord at start-up.

He was a tremendous talent.

 

Felix was that. A fantastic producer, to say the least also.

Being "Most Recognizable" means you know the song as soon as you hear the baseline. I suppose it helps if the song isn't obscure. Here are my nominees:

Can't Hurry Love

Get Ready

  • The Temptations
  • Rare Earth

Riders on the Storm

  • The Doors

Seven Nation Army (Even though the bass line was actually done on a guitar with an octave pedal)

  • The White Stripes
