^Song I heard on the 5/16/81 show. And then before playing "Just the Two of Us" which featured an uncredited Bill Withers on lead vocals, he mentioned these, some of which are listed in this thread. Stevie Nicks on "Whenever I call You Friend", Elton John on "Bad Blood", Willie Nelson on "Luckenback Texas", Dee Dee Sharp on "Slow Twistin" and the Bee Gees on "Emotion".

The KLF featuring Tammy Wynette -- Justified and Ancient (I love collaborations between people with two completely different backgrounds of music like these)
Chaka Khan featuring Green Gartside -- Love of a Lifetime (While it never made the top 40, it was like getting a Scritti Polliti song with Chaka singing lead. Should have done better than the 50s on the chart.)
Two #1 Songs: Bad Blood - Neil Sedaka and Whatever Gets You Through The Night - John Lennon would have to feature Elton John.
On the 1975 show guest hosted by Wink Martindale, Wink said that Elt's streak of most consecutive Hot 100 weeks ended when Someone Saved My Life Tonight fell off and there was a one week gap before the debut of Island Girl. That left Elt in 3rd place behind Elvis and Pat Boone. If featuring had existed, the streak would have continued humming right along because Bad Blood was high on the charts.
