VHM to the Dead. The recorded version isn't their best representation of this song, but live this one could really rip.
Let's get right to it.

WOS Disco Dead.
Hey, this ain't no Shakedown Street! I like it. Always enjoyed hearing this in concert.

yeah, SS is more disco-y, tho' iirc Arista serviced this one to clubs too. It was all Clive Davis' fault.

There are few things I agree with Dave Marsh about, but his line about the Dead doing the lamest, whitest covers of R&B songs ever is pretty (pun intended) dead-on.

MAW, "Be Good Johnny" gets a VHM.
You spin me right 'round, baby, right 'round

Men at Work, Be Good Johnny

This song is why leaving these things to Foghead requests can be a minefield.

Of course, Good Lovin' was blue-eyed soul to begin with. What does that make this? Albino Soul?

well, actually the Rascals version was a white cover of an R&B original (the Olympics, iirc).

I did not know that! Now, I do.

What's the weird "No Good" version?

And it's a Beatles (yay!) twin-spin! But does that make this one number 11?

BOS for "Good Morning". It's quite a composition and production too.

My personal request (which I don't think was duplicated) is Jefferson Airplane's Good Shepherd. Slim chance, since I just requested it about 20 minutes ago, but you never know.
Woulda been sweet.
