Although Paul was technically very good and melodic like no other bass players (well not really - at least at that time) were, I always thought his best trick was sometimes being simple in choosing the right part from the song. For instance Please Please Me verses are just single notes being fired out until the bridge to the chorus. Perfect the tension and mood of the song. Very simple and almost counter to the way that beat would be 'traditionally'. Another example is All My Loving were the bass line determins the grove of the song. Great walking bass that is a normal scale but used to perfection to exemplify the 'swing' of the tune. Ditto Eight Days a week.

Macca is the best bass player to me ever, how melodic can one
get on songs like Penny Lane, All My Loving, Roll Over Beethoven etc.. :)
You don't get any bass player's like that these days. the only bass player
i regard highly is Tina Weymouth from the the Talking Heads & she said her
fav was Macca.
How memorable can a bass line from All My Loving get?  ;)

I've gone for Rain. I Want You (She's So Heavy) is arguably better but I feel that Paul's style on this track was a bit too similar to "The Ox" John Entwhistle (The Who) rather than his own unique melodic bass playing on other tracks.

Memory Almost Full has some very distinctive bass playing, encouraged by Mr. Kahne. Well done Mr. Kahne.

Rain.

The rhythm section is just so powerfull on that. I wish Paul would get Ringo to play on his records. That rhythm section ain't so bad is it?

I voted for Something because Paul's bass is so evident, Paul's bass contributed a lot to the beauty of the song... After all Paul Mc Cartney is the true bass god..
