1 My Shot My 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.

5 Satisfied Satisfied

I will never be satisfied until this is #1

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.

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

6 Non-Stop Non-Stop

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.

Non-Stop is Hamilton at it's finest. It's what got many of my friends into the amazing masterwork that is Hamilton.

I try to sing all the parts... by myself. I listen to this song Non-Stop.

7 Alexander Hamilton Alexander 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

My friend introduced me to hamilton and this was the only song I knew. We'd sing duets, and since I didn't know the whole rap (at the time) she'd let me sing all of Lin's parts. She couldn't stopm laughing becuase I sing super 'princess-ly' - AnonymousChick

8 You'll Be Back You'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!

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.

10 Say No to This Say 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.

Not to brag, but I can sing Maria, Hamilton, and company at the same time. - AnonymousChick

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

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

The Contenders

11 What'd I Miss What'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.

I love this song so much Jefferson is my son

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

12 Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story Who 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

13 Aaron Burr, Sir Aaron Burr, Sir

Who else raps both parts and slightly changes positions based on which part it is? - AnonymousChick

14 Guns and Ships Guns 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!

Someday I will be able to rap this. - AnonymousChick

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

20 Burn Burn

This needs to by higher up on the list! It really shows how talented and beautiful Phillipa so's voice is. You can hear the raw emotion and deep feelings when you listen to this song. It's definitely one of the most poignant songs in the musical.

#26? HER VOCALS ARE THE BEST THING EVER I don't think this should be #1 but AT LEAST IN THE TOP TEN come on GUYS
