Yeah, the bass line is really unusual and not like any of their other songs|
When I did a GarageBand version of this song, the bass part took me the longest to figure out. It's not just the root note of each chord, as is typically the case in pop/rock music; it really moves around. I wonder how they got the idea to do this (perhaps a Beach Boys influence? Brian Wilson famously had bass lines like this, e.g. in God Only Knows) and why they never did anything like it again.
