I loved The Sweeney theme tune from the 70s, does that count as a groove?

 

Yes and they often used bass guitar to provide background music to various 'thoughtful' bits or when carter was following a suspect

If you like a of 5/4 time, the theme to The Bill is hard to beat.

It's 7/4.

How about Have I Got News For You - great fun to play along with.

Cheese and groove

The thing is, in my head I can hear Marvin Gaye or the Miracles doing this with a falsetto lead vocal, and it would be amazing

Here is another classic, with a great bass part, skip forward to about 54 seconds to get past the gubbins.

More pure cheese... but kinda funky.
