As for Mission Statement, I don't like CSNY at all so, as much as I like Al, I refuse to listen to it.

And, I can't speak for which are the 'best' on the album, my two personal preferences are My Own Eyes and First World Problems.

I'm all for people listening to what they enjoy and not listening to what other people tell them to... but dude, you've got over 1800 posts on the Weird Al forums. How have you not listened to a track off of his latest album all the way through even once? If you truly don't enjoy it musically, at least give it a listen for the funny lyrics?

I didn't like this song very much initially. Took me a few listens to get into it, mostly because it's so unpredictable musically, with very little repetition, which is something that my brain doesn't really like. It's the same with Genius in France.
Love and peace.

Update: I finally listened to the whole thing.

Didn't find it funny.

I never liked it to start but one day I realized how amazing the music is & how funny the lyrics are.

Musically, it's fantastic. It's just one I'd prefer to listen to. Maybe it'll grow on me down the line.

Airline Amy was a song I skipped for YEARS until recently when I started to dig it.

I love this song. I like how life can be this beautiful and dramatic in one's head.

It absolutely took me a couple of tries to listen all the way through and start enjoying it. The biggest thing it's got going against it is the fact that it's not energetic as Albuquerque or even TITDT. which makes the meandering story kind of boring I guess? But when the jokes hit, they hit hard.
Sever your leg, please. It's the greatest day.
