Dear Evan Hansen and Hamilton?

My top 5 songs from Dear Evan Hansen

1. Words Fail: It is one of the single most moving piece of music I’ve ever heard. I can’t listen to it without crying. It’s just. Beyond stunning. I’ll remember this song for the rest of my life.

2. For Forever: So pretty. So emotional. So well-sung. So….wow.

3. Waving Through a Window: The most relatable song in all of musical theatre history, at least for me, personally.

4. Good for You: An unsung hero. A true jam. (Also, Rachel Bay Jones is a goddess.)

5. You Will Be Found: The five-part harmonies, the lyrics, the symbolism, the imagery, the chord structure… Everything about this song is moving and gorgeous.

My top 5 songs from Hamilton

1. Hurricane: Just. To me, this song is the most emotional of the show. I can’t quite explain why, perhaps it’s my connection with using writing as an escape…

2. Dear Theodosia: I can’t go into this song or I won’t stop.

3. Wait For It: As someone who’s simultaneously an overachiever and…not one, I adore this song.

4. The World Was Wide Enough: Hamilton’s death monologue is, in my opinion, the best-written part of the entire show.

5. Say No To This: TBH Jasmine Cephas Jones’s voice is just really good. 

  • Hamilton: It's alright Burr, I wish you brought this girl with you tonight Burr
  • Burr: You're very kind but I'm afraid it's unlawful, sir.
  • Hamilton: What do you mean?
  • Burr: She's married
  • Hamilton: I see
  • Burr: She's married to a british officer
  • Hamilton: ¡NO ME DIGA!

willing | a critical role fan song

Music by Jake Smith ( @jakesmithsings )
Lyrics by Gina Smith ( @floatslikebricks )
Performance by Jake Smith

We have wanted to write a musical theater style tribute to Critical Role for quite some time.  ‘willing’ is based on the 44th episode, ‘The Sunken Tomb’, which was, without a doubt, one of the most powerful and plot-rocking moments in the whole show.

Listen to the song on SoundCloud!
