Top Ten Songs from the Broadway Show Hamilton

The Top Ten

1 Satisfied

Satisfied is not just about a girl that has a crush on her sister's husband, no. Satisfied is also teaching a lesson to anyone hearing it to learn to let go. Angelica loves Eliza more than anything and decides to let Alexander go despite as she said, "He will never be satisfied, I will never be satisfied..."

I will never be satisfied until this is #1

This song is overrated to me, I usually just skip it. All it does is introduce a love triangle that is irrelevant to the plot.

A toast to the groom!

2 Wait for It

I love how this gives an insight as to how deep Burr's character was, he may have been an orphan like Hamilton. But unlike Hamilton, he has the patience of a saint. Until the end of the musical during 'The World Was Wide Enough.'

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

This song is so motivating! I am always listening to it!

4 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

This is the "Lose Yourself" of Broadway.

There's like so many songs that include this one

5 Non-Stop

I have never liked rap. Until Hamilton introduced me to the world. I loved Non-stop the best. Why? Because it gave me a good feeling. A you-can-do-anything feeling. It has a perfect harmony and beautiful combined lyrics. This is the first time I learned how to rap. How I knew to understand it. So now I'm 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.

Non-Stop has samples from basically EVERY song and includes so many contrasting harmonies and characters. I always try to sing every part at the end, hah...

I went a whole month just listening to this song on repeat - prussian

6 You'll Be Back

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

I am utterly shocked. My top five makes up five of the top six. I'll be back to check and see if my number one has moved up from sixth.

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

Got sick of Hamilton quickly, thanks to my little sister, but I still enjoy this song. Jonathan Groff's voice is amazing and it's too catchy for its own good.

I love Angelica’s part in this.

8 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

Good song. I'm singing this one in an upcoming concert in school. - Gabriola

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

9 It's Quiet Uptown

The emotion in this song is absolutely incredible. For 4 minutes and 30 seconds, you go through what he was going through. Not to mention the glorious melody and harmonies.

In 4 minutes and 30 seconds, you go through what Hamilton went through. That's how emotional the song is. And then there's the beautiful melody and angelic harmonies.

Not my favorite song but it needs to be higher on the list because AAA JUST SEEING THE TITLE MAKES ME HYSTERICAL (it doesn't make me cry, though, because when I;m hysterical I smile which is weird but true) and it's sadly really catchy so every time it gets in my head I want to throw things

10 Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story

I read another article that ranked the songs (I forgot what it was called I'm sorry) and for this one, they mentioned that, "As bad as it is that Hamilton isn't remembered too well, it's even worse how little Eliza is remembered." This song shows how amazing Eliza is. She did all of this to keep her husband's (who did some pretty bad things, if you know what I'm talking about) legacy secure.

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? "

Phillipa so has an angelic voice that etches its mark onto your heart. I don't understand why That Would Be Enough or Burn is not here, but I know it would be in the Top Three of Hamilton Songs that make you cry. This is a heart-wrenching song, telling about the untold story of Alexander Hamilton, a founding father. Hamilton is a founding father, very important to our nation, but hardly gets credit or recognition. Phillipa so's voice is great to finish the play and the song will be playing over and over again in our minds...

YES ELIZA! IT was ENOUGH! *cries* - Jindomonium

The Contenders

11 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

How is this so low? O.O
This song is absolutely beautiful.

42? I'm watching this list... BURRRN! "

12 Dear 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.

Such an underrated song!

13 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

14 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!

This is my personal favorite, I played washington in the hamilton my school performed

So good. So good

My little Lafayette 😳

15 Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down)

This is just the best song is Hamilton. I don't really like Hamilton that much (it's because it kinda shows the British as evil people and I'm British) but this song is just amazing. It's got rap, singing, an amazing tune, good story, captivating lyrics and call backs to other songs. In my opinion this should be #1. The world turned upside down... because this isn't #1.

I ADORE this song! It is amazing and the first time I heard it I'm like "Boi this is a great song" Let's get this higher on the list this song is OUTSTANDING! 5 STARS!

Quality. I will never be satisfied until this is in the top ten.

14 are you serious?

16 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

How is this not #1

Where have you been uhh... france

18 Washington On Your Side

I love this song! What a good rap - Scr3aM

19 One Last Time

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

I had the privledge to see the amazing Chris Jackson perform this on Broadway and it legit made my cry. SO GOOD

I <3 Chris Jackson, he is incredibly talented, has a voice that blows away most singers you hear on the radio, and seems like a really nice person. Please get this outstanding song higher it's truly amazing if more people listened to it. ASTOUNDING performer

20 Aaron Burr, Sir

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