The Hamilton Tag

I have been a bit obsessed with all things Hamilton over the last few months, which you might have figured out from some of my recent musical blog posts including my Top 10 Hamilton Songs. I first discovered this show last year and it really didn't take me long to fall in love with it so if there's an opportunity to blog about it, I'm going to. I saw the Hamilton tag floating around on Youtube recently so I thought I'd give it a go too.

1. How did you find out about Hamilton?
As I'm pretty much always listening to some sort of musical, the title song Alexander Hamilton started playing on Spotify between whatever else I already had on and I just loved it. I only listened to a few select songs for a while and whilst I thought they were good I didn't jump straight in and listen to the full thing. Once I did though I was hooked and I've not stopped listening since. 

2. Favourite character?
Probably Angelica Schuyler, I love how sassy she is. I also really like Aaron Burr though too, I really don't see him as the villain he's portrayed to be.

3. Character you would want to play?
Again probably Angelica. I think there is so much to her character and she has one of the best songs in the whole show.

4. Favourite song to listen to?
It changes so often but at the moment probably Wait For It. There are just no words to describe it, it gives me goosebumps. I never get bored of The Room Where It Happens though aswell. Oh and One Last Time gives me chills! That's one I'm really looking forward to hearing live.

5. Favourite song to sing along with?
I don't really sing along to any but I do love Helpless. It's grown on me ever since I first heard it and now I play it all the time!

6. Part you always mess up?
Some of the cabinet battles are so fast, I think they're the ones that would be impossible to try and go along with.

7. Can you rap guns and ships?
I'd like to think so but it would definitely be a struggle!

8. Which cast member would you most want to meet?
It would have to be Lin Manuel Miranda wouldn't it? He is an actual genius for creating this amazing show and he deserves so much recognition for it. Leslie Odom Jr was absolutely incredible as Aaron Burr though as you can tell just by his voice on the soundtrack.

9. Have you seen the show?
Not yet but I am in December, it can't come soon enough!

10. Have you read the book?
No, maybe one day but for now the show is enough, it's taken me ages to properly get my head around it all.

11. Favourite line in the show?
There are so many to choose from! I love love love the 'immigrants we get the job done' line in Yorktown. 

12. Five words to describe the show?
Powerful, emotional, intense, breathtaking, addictive

I'm just incredibly excited to see the show now, I'm honestly counting down the days! Are you a Hamilton fan?
