Looking for songs with straight in the pocket drumming.

Chameleon - Harvey Mason on Herbie Hancock's Head Hunters album

Living Wreck - Ian Paice on Deep Purple in Rock

yes! All of Steely Dan!

Motown classic hits..
First half of Chameleon is, then it gets very intricate and jazzy.

Ramones' Blitzkrieg Bop or I Wanna Be Sedated

HIM's Wicked Game (cover of the Chris Isaac tune) GREAT steady groove on hi-hat for verses and riding the crash for the choruses

White Stripes' Seven Nation Army

I'm just throwing a few sample songs out there that my band plays live. I'm a very basic drummer and prefer to play simple stuff that my skill level allows.
