    Probably 'Under your spell'. Think Ambers voice is well suited to the song & she sings it really well. Plus the lyrics move the whole Willow/Tara arc forward.
    Plus of course there is the naughty ending..... ;)

    The Parking Ticket. But the full version as found on the soundtrack, not the truncated version on the TV show.
     
    Fuffy Baith: I should listen to that. Lol

    At least it completes the arraignment rather than just cutting it off. Dawn's Ballet is good as well, but you really need the visuals take it to the next level.

    My favorite is Walk Through The Fire. I love the music score. Second might be the Sweet song What You Feel. They're all good in different ways though.

    Thing I like about 'Walk through the Fire' is the way the Firetrucks whizz past just as they sing the word BURN in the lyrics.....
    Joss commented that it was pure fluke it worked like that.
     
    Puppet: YES! That's one of my favorite parts about that song, never knew it was accidental, that's hilarious.

    Yea that's a great moment. The timing has to be right. But it's a great visual to accompany the lyrics.

    Under Your Spell will always be my favourite. Beautiful lyrics, lovely song, and Amber's voice is amazing!

    Have you seen Amber do Creature of the night from RHPS? Amaaaaazing :D

    My fav song from OMWF will always be Rest in Peace, but Under your spell is a very close second.
     
    WillowFromBuffy: I am glad she did not sing that on the show. Willow would have gotten a heart attack.

    Where Do We Go From Here is so awesome and Giles' "tell me" gives my life a meaning.

    'Going Through The Motions' is the one that pops into my head most often. Something about the lyrics and music score- like an ear worm.
    Plus the way the song lines mirror the actions onscreen is very clever.

    But when I watch the episode its 'Standing In The Way' and 'Under Your Spell' that consistently impress, especially when Tara and Giles songs then blend together.

    "What's the matter
    Don't you like my style?"

    Sweet has the most awesome talent and the best song of the entire episode.

    Under Your Spell, Going Through the Motions, Something to Sing About ("Tara, Anya, she needs backup" cracks me up everytime), Walk Through The Fire ("I think this line is mostly filler" Hahaha)

    Going Through the Motions is my favorite overall

    Also love Walk Through the Fire (great group number) and Standing Still/Under Your Spell (Reprise) which I find beautiful

    but my favorite lyrics moment is from Where do We Go From Here when Giles sings The battle's done and we kind of won...

    I like when Giles sings:
    "i wish i could say the right words
    to lead you through this land
    wish i could play the father
    and take you by the hand
    wish i could stay
    but now i understand
    i'm standing in the way"
