A strong bass line always makes for a great song. No, unless you’re looking for it, you’ll not notice its there. However, the lack of its presence proves its importance with a dampening in the spirit of the music.
I like to think of myself as that bass line. I’m background for the beauty that surrounds me. Not ever really noticed, and I rarely get my chance to shine but without me, something you can’t put your finger on is missing.
