#003 Squeeful things: "Once More With Feeling"  
I moved out of my parents home like 4 years ago. But they've been doing some cleaning and I've just been given a box of some stuff I left behind. And guess what I found on the very top:

Of course it had to be my squeeful thing of the day.
I know that it's actually a heartbreakingly sad and pretty dark episode. But it's also just so much fun! There's witty lyrics (YAY Joss Whedon) and upbeat music and wacky dance numbers and the songs are infectiously catching.

I don't think I can pick a favourite. I like Going Through the Motions as it's one of the rare times I actually feel genuinely sorry for Buffy. Tara's Under your Spell and Giles' Standing both leave me teared up. I'll Never Tell manages to be simultaneously hilarious and really sad, plus Emma Caulfield has an amazing voice. Spike's Rest in Peace is completely LOL! And the group numbers at the end are all just wonderful.

We've had many a fun road trip singing this whole album at the top of our voices. A tradition I may have to restart ;)

The next time we're all in a car together, we should sing... :DDDD

*points to the icon*
That's my only Buffy icon... And he wasn't even in the musical!

This is why my mood was NOSTALGIC!

It's really sad that he wasn't in the musical. I bet he'd be an awesome singer.

I also only seem to have 2 Buffy icons. I'm sure I had more...

YAYYY :-D I love this too!
Weirdly this is the second post about OMWF on my flist today...which makes it a very good day!
I am re-watching the whole of Buffy at the minute as my husband hadn't seen it before, we've just finished season 5 so we'll be on to this soon, hurrah!
