    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.

    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
    Non-Stop
    All of Jonathan Groff/King George
    Hurricane

    "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

    That sequence of "Helpless" to "Satisfied" was so much better watching it on TV than on the soundtrack too.

    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.

    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.

    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!
    :blowup:


    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 :ohgosh:

    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.
