Initially I didn't really pick up on the MeatLoaf thing.

After a couple listens, I can hear it. Good song overall.

It's the obligatory big production number album closer. It's kind of reminded me of DDTS meets VA. It's a well done song, musically I have no criticisms. Some of the lyrics were a bit predictable, but there were some good laughs in there so no complaints. I enjoyed it. I don't know too many Meat Loaf songs, but I can hear him in the song. When I think of him, I think of big production songs and ballads so it hit the nail on the head perfectly in that respect.

Wow. Just, just wow. Al's really outdone himself with this. It's amazing. Words can barely do this song justice. It's hilarious, the music is great. Wow.

This is definitely the perfect album closer. It's really awesome to listen to, although I like it better musically than lyrically. Al did pretty accurately describe the sorts of dumb things that still get passed around the internet occasionally after years and years of floating around in cyberspace, but at times it seemed like he sort of ran the joke into the ground. I did like the opening line where Al questions why his subject is supposedly wasting his time and the "repetitious" bit near the end, but it still trailed off in some parts. Still, it's one of the better originals on the album and definitely worth the wait.

I love the reference to Snopes.

Duh, this song is basically Virus Alert II and from the title I don't think anyone thought it wouldn't be. It's another Weird Al song about technology.

Technology songs = the new food song.

Just because a song is about a similar topic doesn't mean it isn't a brilliant song in it's own right. Just about every song Al does can can be related to an older one.

Watch:

TMZ is just Midnight Star 2
Party in the CIA is just Spy Hard 2 - he even recycled the dental plan joke
If That Isn't Love is just Confessions Part 4
Craigslist is just eBay 2
Ringtone is just Phony Calls 2 - they're both about phones!

Just because they have somewhat similar topic, they're still amazing songs every one of them.

And anyway, I think SFTCTM is more like DDTS than Virus Alert.

Seconded. In fact, I have a suspicion that he brought back the same choir he worked with on DDTS for SFTCTM. They sound exactly the same.
