O is for Once More With Feeling

So, this ranks in my top five Buffy episodes for sure.  Maybe even my top three.  Anyhow, with the overdose of musicals I have seen lately I have them on the brain so I thought I would get them out of my head. 

The theme of Once More With Feeling is the characters being forced to express something they are hiding from the others through song.  It is really quite brilliant.  Some of Whedon's best work, in my humble opinion. 

The songs range in style from rock opera to 50's sitcom theme and are accompanied by some pretty brilliant dance numbers as well. So, without further ado, here are my favorite songs from Once More With Feeling. 

My number one is Giles singing this (unheard) to Buffy.  Anthony Stewart Head is so flipping talented.  

My second favorite is Anya and Xander in all their adorableness.

And of course, I couldn't forget my favorite person ever, in the whole world.  (he literally makes my knees weak *sigh*)

Yup, lots of awesomeness of behalf of Joss and the cast went into this. 


  1. I love Buffy and that episode was so original. I love it even more because not all were great singers, but they went for it anyway.

  2. Very interesting post. I'm not so much "in the know" here. Is this from Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Is OMWF one of the episodes of the show? I like the songs -- I think I will check out the show. I hesitated to ask these basic questions, but, heck, they are the questions I have. :-)



  3. definitely in my top 5 episodes also!

  4. Oh man...those were the days! My favorite television series! I miss it so much. I did start re-watching a few of the seasons...made me smile!

    Nice post :)

  5. Stopping by to say hi on the A-Z Challenge!
