    I was listening to this song the other day

    Cecilia - Simon & Garfunkel

    and I really admired the groove created by the layering of percussion. I thought it would be interesting to compile songs that layed down the groove like that one did. Cecilia is so groovy that a version of it features Stomp

    Cecilia - Stomp, Paul Simon, and Jimmy Fallon

    So here are some other songs that lay down a good groove, with percussion as the base

    Funk #49 – Joe Walsh (James Gang)

    I’m a Man - Chicago

    Hyperactive – Thomas Dolby

    Nausea – Beck (with Borat cameo)

    Feel free to add your own

    Off the top of my head... all are probably more reliant on the bass for providing the groove than the percussion. But I dig all these grooves.

    Love the rhythm section of this one even if it's a bit disco.

    That bass... :)

    Bill Withers - Use Me HQ!

    So many different beats.

    Drums and keyboard
    (Well I just got into town about an hour ago.
    Took a look around to see which way the wind blow)
    Guitar talks

    Old West saloon piano

    The beat changes
    (Motel, money, murder, madness. Change the mood from glad to sadness)

    The drums kick in
    (Mr Mojo Risin')

    Then it all comes together again

    Yes, a great groove, and possibly the best driving song ever!
