Top Ten Songs from the Broadway Show Hamilton

The Top TenXW

1My Shot

They say I listen to Hamilton too much, I say I am not throwing away my shot

Look at these nerds rapping about the founding fathers, My day is getting dark so let me spell out my name, I am the AL-EX-AN-D-ER-WE are meant to be colony that runs independently

I'm young, scrappy, and hungry and I'm not throwing away my shot! - NotYoursTruly

This is the "Lose Yourself" of Broadway.

2Wait for It

I'm willing it wait for it! I'm willing to wait to actually get enough money to see hamilton!

It will be a long time until I get to see Hamilton but I'm willing to wait for it - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

I don't have a favorite song but I'm willing to wait for it

Leslie sings this song so beautifully!

3The Room Where It Happens

When this was made I wish I was in the room where I happened


I know the entire song by heart, I just can't get enough- or should I say, "I will never be satisfied"?

One of the most beautiful songs in this musical. Basically Hamilton's On My Own.

If I don't listen to this song after a while, I'll never be satisfied - NotYoursTruly

I will never be satisfied until I get to see this musical - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

5The Schuyler Sisters
6Alexander Hamilton

I first heard a parody of this song about General Hux, a character from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I loved the parody and was interested in listening to the original. And boy, was I pleased. I listened to the rest of the soundtrack and just fell in love with it! Now, I need to go see this Broadway show live! - Supernatural

The first one I heard, and boy do I regret not listening to it sooner. Off to listen to the whole soundtrack! - keycha1n


Non-Stop is basically a perfect mini medley of the beginning of the musical, and it has so many quotable moments! There's no better way to end Act One than with this flawless song.

Such an amazing song and includes so many characters contrasting harmonies and it all fits together perfectly and creates a beautiful effect.

Wow my love for Hamilton is NON-STOP

8You'll Be Back

One of my friends said they're too old for Hamilton. So I told her, "You'll be Back! " - NotYoursTruly

Jonathan Groff is absolutely PERFECT. He nails the part of King George III!

9Dear Theodosia

I think this song should be way higher. It breaks my heart how low this is. - NotYoursTruly

This is such a sweet and touching song.

10What'd I Miss

Jefferson is great and he knows it so here he comes hopping out his little boat from France in a fancy coat and throws shade at Hamilton the rest of the act. Fab entrance for a fab character.

Not only does this song sound amazing, Daveed performs it extremely well live and seeing him made me sooo happy.

The Contenders

11Aaron Burr, Sir
12Say No to This

Jasmine's voice in this is amazing, and the fact that she can morph into even different voices makes me love her more. She probably has the strongest voice in the cast.

Jasmine is the best singer in the whole musical. - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

Wow I don't know how to say no to this

13Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story

Eliza is my favorite character and it shows all of her loyalty and kindness. It brings tears into my eyes and my favorite, though Wait for It, Satisfied, and Burn are close.

A perfect, bittersweet ending! "Can I tell you what I'm proudest of? "

I always wonder who lives who dies who tells your story

14The Story of Tonight
15Guns and Ships

I can entirely rap guns and ships and if you knew me you would be surprised that I can rap at all. This song actually is the reason I know what Hamilton is. Lastly I can now rap in French thanks to Lafayette!

I'm taking this horse by the reins making redcoats redder with bloodstains
And I'm never gonna stop until I make em drop, burn em up and skatter their remains I'm
Watch me engaging escaping enraging I'm
I go to France for more funds, I come back with more GUNS
and ships and so the balance shifts

16One Last Time

Christopher Jackson probably has the best voice out of the male cast he really brings the house down
