    • Title: Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered.
      From the Frank Sinatra song "Bewitched" (Written by Rodgers/Hart). Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart wrote this song as part of their score for the musical "Pal Joey" in 1941. The second to last verse seems particularly appropriate to the Xander/Cordelia relationship seen in the episode:
      I lost my heart, but what of it
      he is cold I agree
      She might laugh, but I love it
      Although the laugh's on me

      The chorus of the song is as follows:
      I'm wild again, beguiled again
      A whimpering, simpering child again
      Bewitched, bothered and bewildered - am I
