Favorite Songs from Hamilton?

Post by EropsToad on Thu Dec 31, 2015 9:42 pm

For those of you who've listened to the soundtrack, what are your favorite numbers?

My favorites are "My Shot", "Right Hand Man", and "Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down)".

"My Shot" is really freakin' fresh. 'Nuf said. I really like the musicianship of the actors and it has a powerful beat (and I'm a sucker for triplet figures). Also the chord progression when they say "rise up" is really sexy.

"Right Hand Man" has that awesome part when Hamilton swipes the British cannons and the beat gets, well, super fly (who still uses those words?). It has the same intensifying effect as the cannons in "The 1812 Overture", and it sounds pretty f**kin' epic.

"Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down)" implements an intense Celticesque violin riff in an instrumental break. It contrasts greatly with the part that comes directly after when Cornwallis surrenders, and contrasts the nature of the Battle of Yorktown.

My favorite is Right Hand Man. the beat, the 'RISE UP" and Washingtons "OUTGUNNED, OUTMANNED, OUTNUMBERED OUTPLANNED!" was amazing.
