It’s been about 10 months (wow I suck) since my last musical song recommendation. I really love musicals so I’m working on queuing a post every week for a couple months, just bear with me!
If you don’t already know about Hamilton, I recommend stopping whatever you’re doing and listen to the soundtrack. It’s a hip hop musical about one of America’s Founding Fathers, Alexander Hamilton, and it’s amazing. I haven’t seen it yet, my mom got us tickets to see it in October of this year…and she bought them in December. It’s almost impossible to buy tickets for this show unless you’re willing to shell out lots of money or buy tickets way (waaaay) in advance. The musical is written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, and I’ve already talked about him before on my blog because his first Broadway musical, In the Heights, is one of my all time favorites.
I’m pretty much obsessed with every song from Hamilton, but I tend to listen to “Burn” the most. Elizabeth Hamilton, Alexander’s wife (played by Phillipa Soo, a goddess), sings it and it’s after she learns of her husband’s affair. I’m putting in a youtube video but you can also stream the entire album on Spotify. (But just buy the album, truuuust me!!)
