    Non-Stop is really underrated. The last minute of that song is fucking incredible and its even better on stage.

    Felt like listening to this again. I wish they kept the “I see how you look at my sister” line in the final version.

    Are there any good recordings of “It’s Quiet Uptown” without LMM? Goldsberry and Soo crush it but LMM is so cringy.

    LMM the composer is GOAT tier: Almost always have to fire up Moana after Hamilton to keep those vibes going.

    LMM the performer is Community College tier. Facts are facts.

    Lin’s second greatest contribution to the the show, after being its creator, is actually the delivery of the not-so-much-rap/singing-more-spoken-word portions of Yhe World Was Wide Enough and One Last Time.

    His delivery of part of Washington’s speech and the monologue after the final bullet is fired are both really well done.

    So this was posted last night and all I'll say is I want to hear Leslie sing the entire song in this tone/note. It's more singing than acting...slightly different and I'd love to hear the whole thing this way.

    That's a good idea. I'm watching tv and flipping channels to try and catch as many political ads as I can to make my mind up on who to vote for. Pro tip: only really listen to the ads that are approved by a politician.

    Just heard Usher's version from the Mixtape for the first time today. It's definitely not as good but I like the pacing on it for something different.

    I saw a mention of Moana on the last page to keep the LMM vibes going. Has anyone else listened to "In The Heights"? Jackson is also in that musical, and I think it's a pretty underrated show.

    lol. Pretty sure “posters” in this here thread don’t have Soo in their top 5. Legit question. Is it possible to go from Burn->Blow Us All Away->It’s Quiet Uptown without your room becoming extremely dusty?

    My 8 year old was talking to his african American friend about the election and said Barack Obama or Abraham Lincoln should be the president. His friend said or George Washington to which my son replied “he had at least 10 slaves, you shouldn’t get to be president if you owned slaves.” From the mouths of babes

    We just had this talk the other day. My 6 year old was loving Greek mythology a few months back. We got a couple books and we’re going through them and they talked about slavery so I got to have the fun conversation of explaining slavery to someone for the first time. All the zoom lessons with his teacher this week have been about voting/politics. Thursday they talked about voting rights/suffrage/Jim Crow/Slavery/etc. He was pretty devastated to learn that America had slaves. For Halloween this year he debated between Miles Morales and George Washington because they’re his favorite heroes. I didn’t have the heart to tell him.

    And ships
    And so the balance shifts
    We rendezvous with Rochambeau
    Consolidate their gifts
    We can end this war at Yorktown, cut them off at sea, but
    For this to succeed, there is someone else we need
    I know (Hamilton!)
    Sir, he knows what to do in the trench
    Ingenuitive and fluent in French
    I mean (Hamilton!)
    Sir, you're going to have to use him eventually
    What's he going to do on the bench
    I mean (Hamilton!)
    No one has more resilience
    Or matches my practical, tactical brilliance (Hamilton!)
    You want to fight for your land back? (Hamilton!)
    I need my right hand man back (Hamilton!)
