10 Silly Love Songs With Bass
Silly love songs are always fun, but this list of 10 silly love songs with bass is even more fun. Bass is one of the most overlooked parts of a band, but can make any song-especially a silly love song-even better.
- "Five Years Time" by Noah and the Whale. This silly love song features ukulele, whistling, violins, slide whistle, and, of course, some good bass. Its lyrics are silly, fun, and sweet, making it one of the best silly love songs with bass.
- "The Calculation" by Regina Spektor. Regina Spektor is almost always sweet, romantic, and silly, but unlike most of her songs, which are just her and a piano, this one features some great bass. With Regina Spektor's quirky, cute songwriting style pairied with some great bass, "The Calculation" is definitely one of the best silly love songs with bass.
- "Ramona" by Beck. This song is mostly silly because of its context: It was one of the songs featured in "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World". With some great bass lines, Beck's "Ramona" is definitely one of the best silly love songs with bass.
- "Zak and Sara" by Ben Folds. "Zak and Sara" has some really out-there lyrics, but one fantastic bass line. The song is silly and a bit eerie but still very sweet. Ben Folds is a pro at mixing silly and sweet together, and "Zak and Sara" is no exception.
- "Crooked Teeth" by Death Cab for Cutie. While this is a more bitter love song, it still remains silly, fun, and filled with some really great bass, making it one of the best silly love songs with bass out there.
- "Short Skirt Long Jacket" by Cake. Cake is always fun and a little silly, and always features good bass. "Short Skirt Long Jacket" is arguably Cake's most famous hit, and for a reason: It's catchy, fun, and one of the best silly love songs with bass.
