Joss Whedon had wanted to create a musical episode since the first season of Buffy, but wasn't allowed to until the show was moved to a more lenient network, UPN. Another reason for his delaying the musical episode is revealed in his DVD commentary for the episode, where he comments that if he had placed the episode in season four, it would have occurred shortly after the Xena: Warrior Princess musical episode "The Bitter Suite" and would have appeared far less original. Supposedly, the episode "Hush" (which was nominated for an Emmy Award for its use of the absence of human voices) is located where the musical episode would have originally been placed.

Plot

Buffy is patrolling in a cemetery at night, but there is something wrong with her and with the demons she meets and kills: they are all singing and dancing. Buffy sings about her life after returning to Earth, and the way she feels detached from it ("Going Through the Motions").


The morning after, the friends find out such things have happened to them all. They suddenly burst into song again, first wondering what can possibly be the cause for this ("I've Got a Theory") - including a novel idea by Anya ("Bunnies") - and then, guided by Buffy, asserting their ability to deal with it together ("If We're Together"). They further learn that all the people in Sunnydale are forced to sing about their inner feelings ("The Mustard"). Anya Christina Emmanuella Jenkins, formerly known as Aud and Anyanka, Patron Saint of Scorned Women, is a fictional character created by Joss Whedon for the cult television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. ... Buffy Anne Summers is the eponymous fictional character in the film Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the television program of the same name and its numerous spin-offs, such as novels, comic books, and video games. ... Sunnydale Sunnydale, California, is the fictional setting for the U.S. television drama Buffy the Vampire Slayer. ...


Later Xander and Anya sing together about things they would otherwise have never told themselves or each other, namely their fears about their coming marriage ("I'll Never Tell"), Tara sings a love song to Willow about the difference she's made in her life ("Under Your Spell") and Spike sings to Buffy about the torturous nature of their relationship ("Rest in Peace"). Alexander LaVelle Xander Harris (born 1981 in Sunnydale, California) is a fictional character in the cult television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. ... Tara Maclay (born October 16, 1980 and died May 7, 2002 in Sunnydale, California)[1] is a fictional character created by Joss Whedon for the cult television series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. ...

William Pratt, better known as Spike, is a fictional character created by Joss Whedon for the cult television programs, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. ...


Meanwhile in the Magic Box, Giles sings his thoughts, that his continued presence encourages Buffy to remain emotionally dependent on him and that he should no longer act as a father to her lest she never mature, thus he decides to leave again and return to England for good ("Standing"). Tara finds out about a forgetting spell Willow had cast the evening before to make her forget about a fight they had, and decides to break up with her. Giles and Tara duet about leaving as they look at Buffy and Willow respectively, the two of whom are distractedly chatting ("Under Your Spell/Standing (Reprise)"). This article is about the fictional shop in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series. ... Rupert Giles is a fictional character created by Joss Whedon for the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. ...


It seems that a new demon in town, Sweet, is responsible for all the singing. Unfortunately, some people are singing and dancing so much that they spontaneously combust, due to the dramatic release of their pent-up emotions. Sweet has Dawn kidnapped by his minions as she laments her life ("Dawn's Lament"). When Dawn wakes up in The Bronze, she and two of Sweet's minions engage in an interpretive dance; this is Dawn's attempt to escape. ("Dawn's Ballet") Sweet explains that he thinks she is the one who summoned him, and intends to take her to the Underworld and make her his queen ("What You Feel"). Spontaneous human combustion (SHC) refers to the belief that the human body sometimes burns without an external source of ignition. ... Dawn Summers is a fictional character created by Joss Whedon for the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, portrayed by Michelle Trachtenberg. ... The Bronze is a nightclub in Sunnydale, the fictional setting for the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. ... Interpretive dance is a family of dance styles that seeks to interpret the meaning inherent in music rather than by performing specific preformatted moves. ...


The gang discovers this through one of Sweet's minions. Xander, Anya and Willow are eager to help save Dawn, but Giles insists that Buffy should go alone. Spike, dismissing Giles' stubbornness, offers to back Buffy up, but Buffy takes him to task regarding his wish for her to stay away from him, and a humiliated Spike skulks away, telling her he hopes she will dance until she burns. Buffy leaves alone, once again singing about her inability to feel, as both a conflicted Spike and the Scoobies express their desire to fight along with her, accompanied by Sweet, who summons them in song ("Walk Through the Fire"). For the members of Mystery Incorporated, see Scooby-Doo. ...


Arriving at The Bronze, Buffy starts to sing and dance defiantly, cynically expressing her current condition and the hardships of being the Slayer. Then she finally reveals to Sweet and her friends that, by resurrecting her, they had ripped her out of heaven rather than rescuing her from a hell dimension as they thought. As her friends react in horror to the admission, and once she has vocalized her anger and despair, she dances ecstatically to the point of fuming, in a somewhat suicidal effort. Spike arrives and helps her recover, telling her that the only way to mend her wounds is to carry on living, "so one of us is living" ("Something to Sing About").


Applauding, Sweet prepares to leave with Dawn, but it turns out that it is not Dawn who had summoned him, but Xander - who had not understood the implications - leading to the demon giving up on the queen matter and vanishing, telling the group to express their thoughts "once more with feeling" ("What You Feel (Reprise)"). The group does, questioning the pyrrhic victory they've achieved and what to do next ("Where Do We Go from Here?"). A Pyrrhic victory is a victory with devastating cost to the victor. ...


The episode ends with Spike and Buffy kissing, as the curtains fall, as predicted in the previous song's final verse, as the chorus swells one last time ("Coda").


Characters and continuity

  • Although he is never named in dialog or lyrics, the demonic villain of this episode is called Sweet, as per the episode's closing credits and the shooting script.
  • Giles' initial singing experience was playing his guitar and singing at the hotel when he heard a backing orchestra accompany him and the room service staff began to dance together. He is the only Scooby to have musical inclinations shown previously; he played "Behind Blue Eyes" by The Who at an espresso bar in the episode "Where the Wild Things Are" and "Free Bird" by Lynyrd Skynyrd at home in "The Yoko Factor".
  • Anya's line "His penis got diseases from the Chumash tribe" refers to the season 4 episode "Pangs", in which a Native American spirit infects Xander with a cornucopia of various diseases, including syphilis.
  • The song "I've Got a Theory" features numerous references to previous episodes:
    • Willow suggests that "some kid is dreaming, and we're all stuck inside his wacky Broadway nightmare", a reference to the events of "Nightmares". In that episode, when the characters come to realize that people's dreams are coming true, Giles says, "Dreams? That would be a musical comedy version of this. Nightmares — our nightmares are coming true."
    • Anya reinforces her fear of bunnies, introduced in "Fear, Itself", as she blames the singing on them ("Bunnies", a short rock and roll section inside "I've Got a Theory").
    • Buffy sings "I've died twice", referring to the final episodes of season 1 and season 5.
  • In the season 7 episode "Selfless", there is an extended flashback to this episode. Anya and Xander reference an earlier song involving coconuts, and Anya sings about wanting to become Mrs. Xander Harris. She also opens the window to hear a man complaining (in song) that he got mustard on his favorite shirt, providing backstory for a well-known gag in this episode.

Arc significance

  • Dawn continues to experience kleptomania, stealing Sweet's pendant. She first showed an inclination toward crime in "Blood Ties", and began a trend of stealing small trinkets and jewelry in "Intervention".
  • The rest of the Scoobies discover in this episode that Buffy was not rescued from a Hell dimension, but was rather pulled out of Heaven (or something similar).
  • Giles expresses his intention to leave Sunnydale again because Buffy is becoming overly dependent on him.
  • Willow and Tara's problems over Willow's magic use continue, which had begun in "All the Way".
  • After Spike's long obsession with Buffy (which had first been made explicit in "Out of My Mind"), their relationship deepens.

Production details

  • The majority of the footage of "I'll Never Tell" was shot in just one take. Other scenes, notably the parking meter aria immediately following, are long, continuous takes that are unusual in their complexity, at least by television standards.
  • This is the longest episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer — 50 minutes long, as opposed to the usual 42 minutes. It ran past the regular hour intentionally.
  • This episode took two weeks to rehearse dance numbers, record songs, and film (although, unusually for Buffy, it was filmed in "bits and pieces" — the various sections were recorded between other episodes in season 6).
  • Almost Human, the special effects company used by the Buffy spin-off Angel, was called in to design the demon Sweet. Their work was so well received that Almost Human did the majority of special effects from this point forward.[1]
  • Amber Benson's musical number, "Under Your Spell", featured heavily-implied sex between two females, and was edited out for the episode's first broadcast in conservative countries like the Philippines and China.
  • In a press interview, Amber Benson admitted to dancing into a pole during her backup dance in "Something to Sing About". The viewer can see her laughing as she steps back (this occurs during the lyric "and every single verse / can make it that much worse"). And she can be seen arranging the front of her shirt and her hair, afterwards, also.
  • This is Joss Whedon's second favorite episode. (The first being Innocence.)
  • The original airing of "Once More, with Feeling" received 5.4 million viewers.
  • Action figures of Buffy Summers, Anya Jenkins, and Dawn Summers were produced based on this episode.
  • Buffy's Brechtian line, "Dawn's in trouble. Must be Tuesday", is a reference to UPN, which aired Buffy on Tuesday nights. Buffy also aired on Tuesday nights on The WB for the majority of its run.

Cultural references

  • The Music Man - At the end of the episode, Spike says to Buffy, "The day you suss out what you do want, there'll probably be a parade. Seventy-six bloody trombones." This is a reference to the song "Seventy-six Trombones", from the Meredith Willson musical The Music Man.
  • Rent - Joss Whedon gained lots of musical inspiration from musicals such as the rock-edged Rent by Jonathan Larson. Whedon has said[citation needed] that the song "Walk Through the Fire" partly came from the line "Walking through fire without a burn" from the Rent song "I Should Tell You".
  • Pinocchio (1940 film) - Sweet's henchmen appear wooden and puppet-like. When Spike is unable to stop a henchman from escaping, Spike mutters "Strong. Someday he'll be a real boy". This is a reference to the story of Pinocchio.
  • Les Girls - "I'll Never Tell" also references the song "You're Just Too Too" from "Les Girls" by Cole Porter. Both songs have a very similar filming style (two people dancing around a living room) and content (a couple somewhat-facetiously discussing each other's good and bad points), and it even features one direct reference: Anya's line "Look at me, I'm dancing crazy!" is also said by actress Kay Kendall in the original song, in both cases during the songs' dance breaks.
  • The Love for Three Oranges by Sergei Prokofiev - A theme from the overture of that opera is quoted in Buffy's opening number "Going Through the Motions"[citation needed], both by her and by the dancing vampires behind her. The original opera is a surrealistic fairytale.
  • Xander's line, "Respect the cruller. And tame the donut!" is a reference to a similar (yet far more obscene) line from the film Magnolia.
  • Spike's line, "Finish the big group sing. Get your kumbaya-yas out", is a reference to both the song "Kumbaya" and to The Rolling Stones album Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out! The Rolling Stones in Concert.
  • One of the lines in "Going Through the Motions" references the song "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)". Buffy sings "You'll find this fight just doesn't mean a thing..." and the vampire she punches finishes "...she ain't got that swing."
  • Spike, while discussing the recent events with Buffy, mentions "A 600 pound chorago demon making like Yma Súmac", commenting that "Now that one'll stay with you."

Acting and singing

Joss Whedon discovered his actors could sing during a wine-charged Shakespeare reading at his house. He later fashioned his songs around each actor's ability and amount of comfort with their talent. This is why Alyson Hannigan and Michelle Trachtenberg only sing a few sparse lines in this episode; Trachtenberg says she had an agreement with Joss Whedon that she would "sing as little as possible and dance a whole lot".[2] Wikipedia does not yet have an article with this exact name. ...

  • Anthony Stewart Head has extensive musical experience. He played the lead role of Frank-n-Furter in a British production of The Rocky Horror Show and also starred in the London production of the musical Chess, taking over the role of "The American" originated by his brother Murray. He released a solo album, Music for Elevators, with small guest appearances by James Marsters, Alyson Hannigan and Amber Benson, and a song by Joss Whedon.
  • James Marsters also has some musical experience as he was the lead singer and guitarist for his own rock band formed by his friends, Ghost of the Robot.
  • Writer/producer Marti Noxon makes her first on-screen appearance on Buffy as the singing woman receiving a parking ticket. Similarly, executive producer/writer David Fury makes his first appearance as the man who joyously proclaims how the mustard stains were removed from his shirt. Both actors later reprised their roles for the episode "Selfless" in the following season, in a short song explaining exactly how the mustard stains were created.

Music

All the actors sing their own parts without having another singer dubbing their voices (although for "What You Feel", Michelle Trachtenberg had to dub her own voice during post-production when her lines proved to be unclear). Joss Whedon had originally planned to have Buffy's rhythmically complex song "Something to Sing About" dubbed by professional vocalist Jewel, but Sarah Michelle Gellar stepped up to the challenge for the climactic number. All the regular cast are featured in significant solos except Alyson Hannigan (Willow), who had asked Whedon to limit her singing role. In response, Whedon gave Willow an amusing, fourth-wall breaking line for one of her three short solo parts: "I think this line's mostly filler" (Hannigan's reluctance to sing had actually been made part of her character, as was shown in first-season episodes "The Puppet Show" and "Nightmares".) Amber Benson said in an interview that Joss caught her by surprise when he scored her song "Under your Spell" slightly higher than her normal range because he was sure she could handle it. In sound recording, dubbing is the transfer of recorded audio material from one medium to another of the same or a different type. ... For R&B singer Jewell Caples, see Jewell (singer). ...

The opening sequence is completely changed from its usual form, featuring a 26-second main theme whose rock and dark atmosphere was eliminated through its use of percussion in the background and a stereotypical light drum sequence at the end of the theme, similar to the conclusion of heroic classical films.

The songs "Walk through the Fire", "Something to Sing About", and "Where Do We Go from Here" (all progressive rock-style) were musically inspired by Yes's fifth album Close to the Edge, one of Joss Whedon's favorites. The BBC's website about Buffy states that those are just from the song "Close to the Edge", but "Something to Sing About" is more in style of album's songs "And You and I" (that notably was the inspiration of Whedon's trademark "Mutant Enemy", too) and "Siberian Khatru" (Buffy's whirling dance).

Shortly after the original episode aired, Singalongs and Rocky Horror-style re-enactments started becoming common at fan festivals and conventions. These events could involve audience members singing along with the projected episode, audience callbacks, props, costumes, and even live casts. (The official posting board party probably had the first cast in February 2002 and Dragoncon in Atlanta probably has the longest running.) Recently, Singalongs have become popular as individual events outside of fan conventions. The first of these events was held in Boston in 2004 and there is currently a group in New York City that has a monthly live cast. Many of these events and casts have evolved independently with no knowledge of other similar groups. Buffy Singalongs have recently received growing media attention with stories done by the AP, MTV News, and the New York Post[citation needed]. At the 2007 Los Angeles Film Festival, a special screening and sing along was held on June 27th. Both Marti Noxon and Joss Whedon were in attendance and gave brief speeches to the audience. 2002 : January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December February 27, 2002 Alicia Keys wins five Grammys. ...

Technical information

Other technical differences between this episode and the normal ones are its running time (50 minutes and 52 seconds instead of the usual average of 43 minutes) and its format: the episode aired in letterbox format. On the commentary it is mentioned that the episode was filmed in Anamorphic. For the mail collector, see letter box. ... Anamorphic widescreen is a cinematography and photography technique for capturing a widescreen picture on standard 35mm film. ...


The region 2 version is slightly cropped at the sides as it shown in standard 16:9 (1.78:1) as opposed to 1.85:1 (this is most noticeable on the opening credits).


Because of the running time, UPN only aired the full, unedited episode once[citation needed] — delaying the start of the following program (a U.S. pilot of Iron Chef hosted by William Shatner). Unfortunately serious technical glitches plagued UPN's broadcast feed to some of its affiliates in the U.S. Eastern and Central time zones when the episode aired on November 6, 2001. In the case of one UPN affiliate, WKBD-TV in Detroit, the only "glitch" involved a few seconds where the picture "froze" during Sweet's initial meeting with Dawn. At UPN's insistence, Joss Whedon supervised the editing of the full length episode into a more advertiser-friendly standard length. UPN never aired the full length episode again, opting instead for the shortened version. The shortened version is also the one that airs in syndication on FX. The editing eliminated parts of certain songs, including Buffy singing "If We're Together" and several bars of "Walk Through the Fire." Loss of certain dialogue resulted in a confusing ending for the audience, with Sweet abruptly announcing "Big smiles everyone, you beat the bad guy," with little apparent cause. Iron Chef Hiroyuki Sakai With the above words begins each edition of Iron Chef, a Japanese television program produced by FujiTV. The original Japanese title is Ironmen of Cooking ).

WKBD-TV (UPN Detroit) is the Detroit, Michigans UPN affiliate broadcasting on analog channel 50. ...


This "one time only" dispensation to air a longer format is not unprecedented for Whedon and Buffy. A first season episode, "The Puppet Show", enjoyed only a single airing (on May 5, 1997) of a closing credits scene in which Xander, Buffy, and Willow perform a scene from Oedipus Rex in their school's talent show. List of Buffy the Vampire Slayer episodes The Puppet Show is episode 9 in season 1 of the television series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. ... is the 125th day of the year (126th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... For the band, see 1997 (band). ... Oedipus the King (also known as Oedipus Rex and Oedipus Tyrannos) is a Greek tragedy, written by Sophocles around 427 BC. The play was the second of Sophocles three Theban plays to be produced, but its events occur before those of Oedipus at Colonus or Antigone. ...


In an unusual effort to garner Emmy support, 20th Century Fox had the full length episode pressed onto special DVDs shortly after its airing for distribution with the industry trade publication Daily Variety. Regular DVD series collections also include the full length episode.


Also available for sale is the original script book (ISBN 0-689-85918-X). Besides the actual screenplay the book features pictures from the episode, articles, sheet music for all the songs and a behind the scenes.


Finally, after pressure from fans, a single (Region 2) DVD has been released in Europe (two editions: in English for the United Kingdom and in German for Germany). DVD (also known as Digital Versatile Disc or Digital Video Disc - see Etymology) is a popular optical disc storage media format. ... For other uses, see Europe (disambiguation). ... The English language is a West Germanic language that originates in England. ...


David Fury, producer and writer of the show (who also appeared in the episode as the man excited they got the mustard out) asked Whedon if he could document it, and shot about 40 hours of behind-the-scenes material; part of this material is available on the Season Six DVD set. David Fury is an acclaimed American writer. ... DVD (also known as Digital Versatile Disc or Digital Video Disc - see Etymology) is a popular optical disc storage media format. ...


All of the Region 1 DVDs have French and Spanish versions, and the songs are done in French and Spanish too. DVD (also known as Digital Versatile Disc or Digital Video Disc - see Etymology) is a popular optical disc storage media format. ...


In Italian TV and DVD version, while all other songs are as original with subtitles, the "Parking Ticket" song, originally played by Marti Noxon, for some technical problems had to be redubbed by an unknown singer. Marti Noxon is a television and film writer perhaps best known for her work as a writer and executive producer on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. ...

Once More, With Feeling (Buffy episode) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2551 words)
After an overture with some wordless scenes of Buffy and her friends taken from a normal day (simply named "Overture"), we see Buffy patrolling in a cemetery at night, but there is something wrong with her and with the demons she meets and kills: they are all singing and dancing.
Arriving, Buffy starts to sing and dance defiantly, again expressing her current condition and the hardships of being the Slayer, when she finally reveals to Sweet and her friends that when, by resurrecting her, they had pulled her out of Heaven and not out of a hell dimension as they thought.
Other technical differences between this episode and the normal ones are its running time (50 minutes and 52 seconds instead of the usual average of 43 minutes) and its format: the episode aired in letterbox format.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer on UPN: Once More With Feeling (2001)
Whedon has once again raised the bar and created an episode of Buffy that, with the help of widescreen, had the feel of a grand, majestic event and made the episode seem more important than any regular outing.
It is clear that Buffy has a lot left in the tank, for this season and at least one more, and if this already provocative season hasn't reassured you of that, "Once More, With Feeling" should leave no doubt.
