Favorite bass songs to play?

So sometimes as the bassist, we don't get a super exciting part, or a drum solo. Although at a youth retreat a while back we played The Time Has Come by Hillsong, which has a pretty cool bass solo right before the bridge... But what are some songs that you guys like to play, outside of church?
(For example, some of mine are hysteria, and bach cello suite, etc...)

I don't really like playing bass as much as I do guitar, but when I do I like doing "Here We Go" by C3 Oxford Falls and "Innocence Again" by Switchfoot.

Oh, and doing the riff to "Core of My Addiction" by Fireflight isn't out of the question. :P

Outside of church I think would be the bassline to "Hysteria" by Muse. In church, the bassline to "You Won't Relent" by Misty Edwards in off the hook. The bassline to Vicky Beeching's live version of "Awesome God (Your Voice)" is really sweet too.

Break Free, All Day, Tell the World and Salvation is Here are some good ones too

In this is how we overcome, the bass line is really catchy in the chorus.
In Chris Tomlin's "I will rise", the bridge has a walking bass line that's pretty cool.

I really have been enjoying James Jamerson's lines lately, as well as Stevie Wonder.

That's one of my favourite riffs to play on electric guitar.
