I think it’s been well over a year since I first began to love Hamilton: An American Musical and I still constantly listen to the soundtrack and yet another gem of a video was released a couple of days ago. I only got into it yesterday, but I’ve been listening to it non-stop ever since (yes, pun intended)!
I’ve always favored Angelica from the start and until now, but I’ve got to admit that I admire Eliza’s courage to walk away from someone she loves because he cheated on her with some woman (IN THEIR OWN HOUSE!) causing her heart to be torn into pieces. Eliza’s this kind and trusting person (according to Angelica) and she’s been nothing but a great and faithful wife to Alexander, so this song really presents a side of her that, I think, nobody should mess with. She might be helpless, but she ain’t putting up with your shit any longer, Alexander!
FIVE DIFFERENT ELIZA’S (Arianna Afsar, Julia Harriman, Lexi Lawson, Rachelle Ann Go, and Shoba Narayan) AND THEY ARE SLAYING IT!!
Similar songs that come to mind are “Sorry Not Sorry” by Demi Lovato, “Part of Me” by Katy Perry, and “Problem” by Ariana Grande.
On the other hand….
This has been a favorite (and a super relate-able) song of mine for a while now, so I don’t really know why I’m only posting about this now. Or maybe I have and I just forgot about it..?
Well, in any case, I still love this song and I’m still very much like the character singing this song. But there’s no use in thinking about it right now, so might as well not.
I have an exam at 6 pm later and, though I’ve studied for it already, I still need to study more and I just really needed to sneak a post because I might not be able to post these next couple of weeks (final hell weeks for this semester!).
