As September marches on, we bring two songs that have strong bass grooves while representing different ends of the musical spectrum.

Considered one of the biggest icons of funk, Super Freak represents one of Rick James finest musical achievements. One of Rolling Stones Greatest Songs of All Time, it spent ten weeks in the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100. It also went on to top the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart and was nominated for the Grammy for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. Guitar and bass hold down grooves through the song, with a standout bass part, playing a call-and-response with the synth. The vocal harmonies have a giant range throughout the song, which makes for some great, tough multiplayer gameplay.

Also releasing this week is Float, from Switchfoots latest album Where the Light Shines Through. Switchfoot has seen great success over their twenty year career, with 10 albums and two Grammy-nominations, including a win for 2011s Hello Hurricane. While making Where the Light Shines Down, the band worked with producer John Fields, who produced several of their 00s-era albums (including their breakout hit The Beautiful Letdown). Where the Light Shines Through has gone on to hit the top 10 of the Billboard album chart. Float starts with a strong bassline over a relentless clapping beat that creates an infectious, feel-good vibe. Building into a slightly echo-y chorus punctuated with funky guitar, the song drops down a bit for the second verse and introduces a spacey synth riff going into the final chorus.

Really wish both of these were an RB3 DLC song... would have loved to play these on keys. Super Freak looks a bit bland, but really good song. Float is an amazing song, and it looks like it's really fun on all instruments.
