Help me find bass parts I can figure out

Not the fish, the instrument.

OK, so in another thread discussing the bass line of Miss American Pie, someone mentioned that he knew Bruce Thomas, a famous and fantastic bass player, probably my favorite. So, I was listening to some of his work and I can't play most of it (I'm not a very good bass player), but I was able to figure out You Belong to Me:

A couple of months back, I was walking and listening to Hendrix and realized I could figure out Fire. Way back, I was able to figure out Money by Pink Floyd, and most of Mr. Big Stuff.

What other fun, great songs are pretty easy to play, with at least somewhat interesting bass lines? I'd like to avoid Ramones-like 1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-4-4-4-4-5-5-5-5-1-1-1-1, etc.
