Moving right along. "Bite Me" gets the boot.

Went with TWAS theme. It's ok, but if that were not on the album, RWS would be to me the perfect Al album..

At least the Weird Al Show Theme has done interesting stuff going on musically, plus perhaps the most twisted lyrics of any Weird Al song. Harvey meanwhile... Nothing's going on there.

It's a tie between the two most deserving to leave the list. Neither one of them were written to be a part of an album, and so both are really track list fillers. "Harvey" feels like even more of a filler because the album is so short already, with only four parodies.

But while I don't often skip tracks on Al's albums (even Syndicated Inc., which has a good sound to it despite being awful), "The Weird Al Show Theme" is one that I do often skip. It just doesn't fit in with all the awesomeness around it. Maybe it would have helped to have it closer to the end of the album and not between two of the album's strongest parodies.
