Is Lin-Manuel on @list yet?! I'm not even scratching the surface. List inspired by the show, original Broadway cast recording, @hollis, @samgoldd, and @actuallyNPH.
  1. Turns out fast paced, creative lyrics make history more exciting
    Creative Musical theater FTW. + songs I'd love to hear on the radio.
  2. Confirmation NYC has always been a bad ass city
    Listening to the lyrics and walking the streets, realizing you're walking where our founding fathers once doled out bombs during the revolution. And I'm worried about the gum under my shoe.
  3. The Skylar sisters positioned as the first version of Destiny's Child
    There were 4, but Lin-Manuel was like fuck that, all successful girl groups are of 3 bad bitches 🙌🏻
  4. Motivational relevant messages
    "Look around look around, at how lucky we are to be alive right now" "Not throwin' away my shot" "in New York you can be a new man" and 1,000,000 more. #truth
  5. Insane Hip hop samplings
    That feeling when you recognize a beat or a lyrical pattern, for 3 whole hours + infinity on the soundtrack. I haven't stopped listening since it released 2 weeks ago.
  6. Fun facts about New Jersey
    Did you know the most famous dueling ground of the late 1700s and early 1800s was over the river in Weehawken, NJ?! "Everything is legal in New Jersey". Totally going to visit this historic park site one of these weekends.
  7. Lin-Manuel Miranda is only 35
    Makes me question wtf I'm doing with my life, but also, major props for being a young, hip, creative genius. I bow to you. Can't wait to enjoy more of your inevitable prolific career. (S/o in the heights, one of the best!)
  8. Giving light to Eliza Hamilton's story
    Eliza Hamilton forgives her husband after being publicly cheated on and humiliated. She continues his legacy after he dies. We could all take a lesson from her kind heart and compassion.
  9. Aaron Burr, Sir
    He isn't just "the guy who shot Alexander Hamilton". They have quite a history together. And Lin-Manuel makes you feel epic empathy for a man history tells you is an epic bad guy.
  10. Continuous relevant political messaging from 1776
    "Immigrants, we get it done"
