'''Just A Friend''' is a song by the 1980's hip-hop artist Biz Markie that [[Tally Hall]] is known well for covering. This cover is sung by [[Rob Cantor]] during the verses and [[Zubin Sedghi]] during the chorus. It is probably one of Tally Hall's most well known covers, as they have been closing out shows with it almost since the band started. In 2006, they finally recorded a studio version of it but decided not to release it because they weren't happy with it. When asked about it in 2007, they had stated that they didn't believe it was very good in hindsight. Through a change of heart, they fixed some things they weren't happy with and decided to release it as a download for those who bought the 2008 [[Atlantic Records]] re-release of [[Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum]].

=== Trivia ===
* In the original studio recording, it has been reported that [[Andrew ]] was the one to say "and a very big bra."* The original studio recording was first heard at the end of the MTV's "You Hear It First" which was filmed in 2006.* The final chorus is sung (from lowest to highest) by [[Joe Hawley]], Zubin Sedghi, and Rob Cantor
* Also in the last chorus after the "you got what I need, 'do wah'" Joe is know to say a random four syllable word to fill in the musical gap during live performances. (i.e Barbecue Sauce, Chicken Nugget, Dr. Pepper, Michael Jackson, Play Nintendo, etc...)
