I'd say When I Was Your Age gives it a run for it's money.

This song is simultaneously amusing and disturbing. Lyrically speaking, this lady puts him through HELL! Poor baby.

It's sad when you can relate to this song. I can relate, only thankfully the people I've felt this way towards weren't homicidal like the lady in the song, just jerks.

I am listening to a recording of a Vanity Tour show on YouTube right now, and I just heard Al mention that You Don't Love Me Anymore is a pastiche of a band so obscure that no one has ever guessed it, and he will take it to his grave.

It's a pastiche of Extreme. They had a hit song and video called More Than Words. Al's video for YDLMA is greatly inspired by it. Also, on the previous page of this thread, avesjohn pointed out the difference between poisonous and venomous. Al stopped mid-song in Milwaukee last week and acknowledged "poisonous cobra" is incorrect.

No, he explicitly says in the same introduction that the song is not a pastiche of Extreme. His label insisted that the video be a parody since he wanted to release an original song as a single

Part of me thinks that he said this as a joke given how very generic the song actually sounds compared to a lot of Als' other originals & style parodies.

Perhaps themselves.
