Guns and Ships
Don't know that there is one best song, but I've really been listening to "Burn" lately. It's probably my favorite song that most don't talk about.
Wait For It
All her songs are incredible
Guns and Ships
What’d I Miss
You’ll be back
Right hand man
don’t @ me
I feel like Burn is pretty popular (and for good reason because it’s amazing).
Interesting question for this topic...what songs changed for the better or moved up your list now having seen the play? There's a couple that I just liked or never really thought too much about that were really elevated:
One Last Time
All of Jonathan Groff/King George
"What'd I Miss" went from a song that I thought was ok to really enjoyable because of Diggs' performance.
King George sticking around just to party during the Adams Administration.
Edit: coming back for the Reynolds pamphlet is what I was really thinking of.
The last third of One Last Time is the best part, but several others, My Shot, Satisfied, Wait For It, What'd I Miss, The Election of 1800, are better overall
Helpless is the best
Update after more thought I love the whole thing.
That sequence of "Helpless" to "Satisfied" was so much better watching it on TV than on the soundtrack too.
Your Obedient Servant doesn’t get the praise it should.
It never really occurred to me until the movie that Peggy is basically ignored, but then comes back as Mariah Reynolds to kind of complete the Schuyler trifecta and bring down Hamilton.
I can't stop listening to Jonathan Groff since watching it this weekend.
This is a good response to the criticism. Hamilton totally erases Native American genocide. Including it would’ve made it a completely different musical. It’s a good conversation to have, and I appreciate Lin understanding that folks are correctly conflicted about it.
Agreed. Like he said, it's a 2.5 hour show. There's no way to fit everything from that time period into that timeframe. He touched on slavery in some spots but yea a lot was left out and that's understandable.
Act 1 as sung by muppets.
When I saw it in Chicago, he got up and started grinding on Hamilton (seated center stage)
Wait for it >>>
I had tickets to go tonight at the Kennedy Center. Sucks.
Underrated song - Washington On Your Side
If there's a fire you're trying to douse
You can't put it out from inside the house!
I'm in the cabinet, I am complicit and watching and grabbing the power and kiss it
If Washington isn't gon' listen to disciplined dissidents
This is the difference, this kid is out!
The second half of that song goes so hard and the rap verses have an awesome flow from Daveed, and I also think Hercules/Madison is one of the best cast members. His range is astonishing
also, every Cabinet Battle makes my heart flutter
this song was stuck in my head yesterday
watching it is so awesome too. when they get in a line and do their march together, incredible
I’ve had the line “never going to be president, now” stuck in my head for days
Southern mother fuckin Democratic Republicans should’ve been the 1 fuck left in
I can’t get over how awesome the show is. I’m so glad they gave it to us on Disney+
Have listened to it numerous times, watched it for the first time tonight
I gotta go with the heavy songs
1) one last time
2) wait for it
Hercules Mulligan in Yorktown imo.
A close 2nd for me. The one they used is a distant 3rd
It’s not even a full fuck, is it?
I’ll show you a full fuck
Correct. Probably why it got left in.
I’m sure it’s been posted before but this is awesome
Looking into Hercules Mulligan turned me onto not-shitty AMC show Turn: Washington’s Spies.
It's a pretty good show. Fairly historically accurate to the book
Yea, really like that show.
John Andre deserved better.
“HERE COMES THE GENERAL”
Goldsberry just crushes it. Beautiful.
Just texted OZ and OHW but my wife’s former boss chef Howard is a Poly-Bro. I didn’t realize LMM wrote the songs in Moana. Now listening to it, it makes 100% sense. Chef Howard told me he was in legit tears through the whole movie (this dude has inches and pounds on me, prolly legit 6’4 270ish). He took his 2 daughters to watch Moana and was so impressed (but was annoyed Maui stole the stone from Te Feti instead of druging and raping her which is the actual events in Poly culture I guess)
Yep. Pretty sure Chris Jackson, who played the original George Washington, sings as Moana’s father in “Where you are.” Jackson also has a big role in LMM’s “In The Heights” musical.
Hilarious that all of the most recent comments are about missing Obama as POTUS, and not the performance.
Satisfied (Renée Elise Goldsberry is just amazing)
Guns and ships
The Room Where it Happens
All the King George songs
Satisfied just hits different with Renee Ellis Goldsberry performing it.
I like Leslie Odom a lot but thought the Burr in Chicago was better (not Wayne Brady; the guy who they moved to Broadway last year).
