I really love music and have been enjoying creating these writing playlists. For this list I picked songs from my (still) current musical obsession, Hamilton: An American Musical. When I was first listening to this soundtrack it felt so uplifting and inspiring. The writing was just so beautiful and good. I found myself picturing scenes of new story ideas in my head, ideas that begged to be written down. It’s such a great soundtrack/musical with so many fantastic songs to sing and dance to.
In track order, here is my writing playlist made from my top favorite Hamilton songs:
“The Story of Tonight”
“The Schuyler Sisters”
“You’ll Be Back”
“Wait For It”
“Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down)”
“Take A Break”
“The Room Where It Happens”
“One Last Time”
“It’s Quiet Uptown”
“Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story”
This post was immediately followed by a jam session of epic proportions, of course. There are 46 songs total on the soundtrack, so I begrudgingly had to narrow this list down to keep it relatively short. The writer/music lover/musical theater geek in me just loves Hamilton and…well, you know I could gush about it all day so I’ll leave it there.
If you’re a fan of Hamilton, what are your favorite songs from the soundtrack? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Let me know in the comment section below.
And, as always, happy writing!
