Good Times (from Risqué, 1979)

It would be cheap to suggest that ‘Good Times’ represents Bernard Edwards’ finest playing, as his career was full of moments of pure genius such as this one. However, the unparalleled bass-line in this song is probably his best-known work, and so many of us have learned from it that it’s impossible not to include it in the higher echelons of this list. Wise indeed is the man who knows that the sum of all bass-centric wisdom lies not in the moshpit nor at the blues club – but at the disco.
