25 Thoughts About Hamilton The Musical

Hello everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts, I've just been uber busy lately but since I have a 4 day weekend, I'm hoping to plan and schedule some posts so I can get this blog back up and running!

Lately, I've been 100% obsessed with Hamilton, which is a Broadway musical about the life of Alexander Hamilton, one of the founding fathers of America. I actually went and saw this musical back in March, when I was not so obsessed with it, but my friend was, so she dragged me along with her but it was AMAZING and I appreciate it so much more now.

Thus, I created this post, 25 thoughts I have while thinking, listening, or watching Hamilton. Enjoy friends.



1. The opening is so good? It sends literal chills through my body all the time I mean WOW



2. ahem. WHAT TIME IS IT Showtime, showtime yo! I'm John Laurens in the place to be. A-two pints o' Sam Adams but I'm working on three. Ha! Those redcoats don't want it with me. Cause I will pop-chicka-prrop these cops till I'm free.

I C O N I C

3. The Schulyer Sisters are so precious at the beginning? And they kick butt in their first song I mean WOW, slay Thomas Jefferson and his sexist butt, Angelica.



4. Also?? WHy didn't Peggy get a song? Like she was in the first song and then died like, PEGGY DESERVED MORE RECOGNITION !!

5. The King George songs are the funniest things ever. Jonathan Groff is a precious human being. And his accent during the songs.. A+ man. Also he was on Glee so that's a plus.

You need proof that Jonathan is great? Look up "The Schulyer Georges" on Youtube :)


this is what you're missing out on

6. Burr literally got REJECTED in Right Hand Man. Like: "BURR: hey washington i'd love to be your right hand man." "WASHINGTON: nah man Hamilton seems better lol"

7. You know, Burr and Hamilton may hate each other. But there's one thing they have in common. THEY'RE RELIABLE WITH THE LADIES!

8. HELPLESS IS SUCH A CUTE SONG. Eliza is a baby that must be protected what a CUTIE. 

Look into your eyes. And the sky’s the limit I’m Helpless! Down for the count! And I’m drownin’ in ‘em <3


9. Satisfied is a really INSANELY good song but also a really INSANELY sad song. I'm obviously Eliza x Alexander for the win but Angelica :(

10. The Story of Tonight has a special place in my heart, it just makes me warm and fun inside :D

Raise a glass to freedom! Something they can never take away. No matter what they tell you.
Raise a glass to the four of us! Tomorrow there’ll be more of us. 



11. Wait For It is such a pleasant song, probably my favorite Burr song. I love Leslie Odom Jr. 

Love doesn't discriminate between the sinners and the saints, it takes and it takes and it takes and we keep loving anyway.

12. Stay Alive is such a wild ride, it starts out with Eliza being really emotional and then everyone really mysterious and then INTENSE and then mysteriously INTENSE and it's like

woah let's just slow down for a second buds

13. Ten Duel Commandments is such an underappreciated song like it's so fun and upbeat and also really ironic. 

Alexander. Aaron Burr, sir. Can we agree that duels are dumb and immature? Sure.

a h e m

14. Meet Me Inside: "WASHINGTON: s-" "HAMILTON: call me son ONE MORE TIME"

15. Guns and Ships is such a fun song, LAFAYETTE'S RAPS WOW. and the Alexander Hamilton little bit in there is so f u n. 


when you don't know the rap in guns and ships

16. Yorktown is also so intense like references from so many songs and it's an amazing song. It makes me want to jump on my bed with the rock symbol while headbanging, imagine it. YES YES YES WHOO ALRIGHT LET's GOO. HARDCORE

all the readers right now: what a loser

17. What I'd Miss is also such an unappreciated song. It starts with Burr doing this killer catchy beat in the beginning and then Jefferson does this catchy stuff and this this AWESOME like traditional Broadway song comes in




18. The Cabinet Battles are intense, similar to the debates of our presidential candidates whOOPS

19. The whole Say No To This, Hurricane, Burn saga makes me CRY. Why Ham, WHY.

ELIZA SCHULYER DESERVED B E T T E R. Ham is so lucky that Eliza forgave him I mean wow. If I was Eliza and I heard "Say No To This" I would have packed my bags, grabbed my children that my husband neglected and move the heck away from him. 



20. The Room Where It Happens is also a really good song. Poor Burr, he just wanted to be in the room, maybe for a couple seconds or something. 

21. Washington On Your Side is so underappreciated, I don't really like what it's about but it's a fairly upbeat song, I don't usually skip it. The raps are fun. And it's always like "hey Ham! You have washington on your side haha you're so lucky, we secretly hate you :)"

22. It's Quiet Uptown may be one of my favorite songs on the album because it was so sad but Eliza and Alexander made up and that's all that matters to me <3

23. I LOVE YOUR OBEDIENT SERVANT IT's ONE OF MY FAVES give it some love please it's such a wonderful song, especially Burr's part what a beautiful song. even though it's where they literally decide to try and kill each other in a duel it's still BEAUTIFUL ok

Dear Alexander:

I am slow to anger. But I toe the line. As I reckon with the effects. Of your life on mine. I look back on where I failed


well you did by agreeing to that duel


24. You wanna know the song I skip everytime? The World Was Wide Enough. THAT SONG makes me CRY every. single time. Ham literally didn't learn anything from Phillip. "ok so in a duel, my son shot up at the sky and died. you know what i'm gonna do the EXACT same thing. hopefully i won't die hah"



yeah you're gonna pay for it


25. Eliza Schulyer wanted to make sure her husband was known for the good things, despite all the bad things he did for her. And for that, she's the hero of his story honestly WHAT A WOMAN. 

 you did good eliza. 



in conclusion, i love this musical and you all should too.

  3. I LOVE HAMILTON SO MUCH!!!!!

    I can't believe you saw it!!! Consider yourself the luckiest person alive.

    My favorite songs are Satisfied, Wait for It, Ten Duel Commandments, and Guns and Ships. But of course they're all AMAZING.

    Also, I used to just turn it off when it got to Blow Us All Away because I knew Phillip was going to die soon and it would just teAR ME UP! Sometimes I just don't want to cry, you know?

  4. For the record, the actress for Peggy also plays Maria Reynolds, so she gets to do Say No To This, but I thought the same exact thing when I first listened through the soundtrack. This post was so much fun to read, I felt like I can see you fangirling while writing it and finding the gifs.

  11. THIS POST GAVE ME GOOSEBUMPS! "Alexander. Aaron Burr, sir. Can we agree that duels are dumb and immature? Sure." BUT YOUR MAN STILL NEEDS TO ANSWER FOR HIS WOOOORDS, BURR. That bit is so good. IT'S ALL SO GOOD. My faves are Take A Break (!!!) and It's Quiet and Wait for It and Hurricane and Story of Tonight (Reprise) -- "I will never understand you" just KILLS me like YOU TWO YOU'RE SO SIMILAR AND YET YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER WHY CAN'T YOU JUST BE BEST PALS WHY?? Likewise in Dear Theodosia, like HELLO YOU ARE THE SAME YOU ARE SHARING A SONG ABOUT FATHERHOOD JUST BE FRIENDS. And What'd I Miss is so underappreciated, it's so jazzy I love it! Virginia my home sweet home--

    well I should stop.

    OH BUT NON-STOP!

    So inspirational! Legit whenever I'm writing I've got WRITE DAY AND NIGHT LIKE YOU NEED IT TO SURVIVE running through and through my head!

    anyway I really am going to stop but I love this post!
