I'm guessing that those who found this episode boring didn't live through the Vietnam era. I found my stomach going into knots and my fingernails digging into my palms during the draft lottery scene. It was horrendous.
Regarding the last song, Shazaam said it was The Everly Brothers.
And taking another look at the scene where Alan starts listening to the record, you can see the Everly Brothers LP cover in the background.
