ALL 46 SONGS IN HAMILTON, RANKED.

Inspired by @justjills, @amieshmamie, @allisonlantagne and others, because what's one more Hamilton list. I reserve the right to edit this as my mood changes.
  1. 46.
    Schuyler Defeated
    More interlude than full song.
  2. 45.
    Aaron Burr, Sir
    Cool rhymes and I love the snotty Burr and eager to please Hamilton, but it's just not my favorite.
  3. 44.
    History Has Its Eyes On You
    Not really sure why, but I don't love this one either.
  4. 43.
    The Story of Tonight (Reprise)
    Good, but mostly a set up for Wait for It
  5. 42.
    The Story of Tonight
    Nice, but short. I love those four men together, though.
  6. 41.
    A Winter's Ball
    Also good, but short. Love the "hey hey hey," though.
  7. 40.
    The Adams Administration
    Those 18th century politicians were savage.
  8. 39.
    Stay Alive
    Great song, but makes me kind of tense. Things are getting real, here.
  9. 38.
    Meet Me Inside
    Also stressful to listen to.
  10. 37.
    Stay Alive (Reprise)
    You can really feel Eliza's anguish here. Heartbreaking.
  11. 36.
    The Room Where It Happens
    People say this is a bonafide showstopper, and it's really good, but for some reason, I just don't connect with it as much as I feel like I should.
  12. 35.
    Say No to This
    Ham, what are you doing??? Jasmine Cephas Jones is fabulous, though.
  13. 34.
    Best of Wives, Best of Women
    💔
  14. 33.
    Your Obedient Servant
    One of those mindfucks, because it's all peppy, but you know what's coming.
  15. 32.
    We Know
    I love Jefferson, Madison and Burr in this.
  16. 31.
    Alexander Hamilton
    The first song, the intro to the genius that is this show.
  17. 30.
    You'll Be Back
    The first of three hilarious KG3 songs.
  18. 29.
    What Comes Next
    So snotty. Jonathan Groff plays it so well.
  19. 28.
    Blow Us All Away
    What are you doing to me, Lin? This song starts off all jaunty and such and then you kill Phillip?! Talk about a bait and switch.
  20. 27.
    That Would Be Enough
    So sweet and so sad.
  21. 26.
    The Election of 1800
    By this point, I need a relief from all the emotion. Love Burr campaigning. Actually feel for him when he loses.
  22. 25.
    I Know Him
    My fave of the King George songs. I just love how utterly incredulous he is that the US is just going to keep replacing whoever's in charge.
  23. 24.
    My Shot
    Excellent, and defining moment of the show. Love the intro to Hamilton's buds.
  24. 23.
    The Reynolds Pamphlet
    Hamilton, how could you? But I do love the glee that Jefferson especially has when he sings that Hamilton's "never gonna be president now." Again, savage.
  25. 22.
    What'd I Miss?
    Love how flamboyantly Daveed Diggs plays Jefferson.
  26. 21.
    Ten Duel Commandments
    Genius homage. And nerve-racking foreshadowing.
  27. 20.
    Farmer Refuted
    Love this, and it just feels so catchy. Hilarious, staged (Hamilton and Seabury try to push each other off the crate they're standing on). Reminds of a fun version of the Valjean/Javert duet in Les Mis.
  28. 19.
    Take a Break
    Home of the comma sext. 🔥
  29. 18.
    Right Hand Man
    Love Chris Jackson and Lin Manuel Miranda both in this song.
  30. 17.
    One Last Time
    Chris Jackson, I wish you and Daveed could have tied for the Tony.
  31. 16.
    Cabinet Battle #2
    Love when Hamilton pretends to take King Louis's head out of a basket.
  32. 15.
    Cabinet Battle #1
    Love Jefferson's sass about the Declaration of Independence. "These are wise words, enterprising men quote 'em. Don't act surprised you guys, 'cause I wrote him." And Hamilton's entire come back is fabulous. "Hey neighbor, your debts are paid 'cause you don't pay for labor."
  33. 14.
    Non-Stop
    Awesome Act 1 closing. Lin Manuel Miranda did a really awesome job with these exposition-heavy songs.
  34. 13.
    It's Quiet, Uptown
    If you want to see me just full on sob, play this song.
  35. 12.
    Dear Theodosia
    Beautiful.
  36. 11.
    The World Was Wide Enough
    The song that really cements Burr as a sympathetic antagonist. He kills the hero, but you can't help but feel for him, too. Along with Wait for It, I think this is what won Leslie Odom, Jr. the Tony.
  37. 10.
    Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story?
    Beautiful finale
  38. 9.
    Hurricane
    It took me a few listens to fully appreciate this one, but now it's in my top 10.
  39. 8.
    The Schuyler Sisters
    So many 💯 lines!
  40. 7.
    Washington on Your Side
    I love the sass of Jefferson, Madison and Burr. "Southern motherfuckin' Democratic Republicans!" is one of my favorite lines in the show.
  41. 6.
    Helpless
    Boy, it's got me helpless. I look into Phillipa Soo's eyes, and the sky's the limit.
  42. 5.
    Burn
    Kills me every time. Phillipa Soo slays this.
  43. 4.
    Guns and Ships
    Tell me Daveed Diggs isn't utterly phenomenal. Just try.
  44. 3.
    Yorktown
    By far my favorite, visually. It is so cool to see staged and reminds me so much of the end of Act 1 of Les Mis. Also home to the fabulous Hercules Mulligan interlude. "When you knock me down, I get the fuck back up again!"
  45. 2.
    Satisfied
    Wherein Renee Elise Goldsberry demonstrates that she is an undeniable queen.
  46. 1.
    Wait for It
    Has always been and will always be my favorite. I remember when I first listened to this album when NPR released it. I paused here and repeated this song like 4 times. Leslie Odom, Jr.'s voice is not of this world. I've listened to this son at least 500 times.
