4. My Shot — Hamilton Soundtrack
“Burr, check what we got.
Mister Lafayette, hard rock like Lancelot.
I think your pants look hot.
Laurens, I like you a lot.
Let’s hatch a plot blacker than the kettle callin’ the pot…
What are the odds the gods would put us all in one spot?
Poppin’ a squat on conventional wisdom, like it or not.
A bunch of revolutionary manumission abolitionists?
Give me a position, show me where the ammunition is!
Oh, am I talkin’ too loud?
Sometimes I get over excited, shoot off at the mouth.
I never had a group of friends before.
I promise that I’ll make y’all proud.”
5. Alexander Hamilton — The Hamilton Soundtrack
“[MULLIGAN/MADISON & LAFAYETTE/JEFFERSON]
We fought with him.
Me? I died for him.
Me? I trusted him.
[ELIZA & ANGELICA & PEGGY/MARIA]
Me? I loved him.
And me? I’m the damn fool that shot him.”
6. Aaron Burr, Sir — The Hamilton Soundtrack
“He looked at me like I was stupid. I’m not stupid.” Or
“Ah oui oui, mon ami, je m'appelle Lafayette!
The Lancelot of the revolutionary set!
I came from afar just to say “Bonsoir!”
Tell the king, “Casse-toi!” Who’s the best? C’est moi!“
7. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays — *NSYNC
“It’s a wonderful feeling. Feel the love in the room from the floor to ceiling! It’s that time of year. Christmastime is here!”
8. Not For Me — Back street Boys
“‘Cause if you think it’s the way love should be, lemme tell it’s not for me!”
9. Just Don’t Tell Me That — *NSYNC
” Just don’t tell me that
You were gonna love me
I don’t wanna hear it, baby
You don’t have tell me that
It’s gonna be your last lie
No baby, I won’t go for that
Even if you did say
You were gonna be there
I don’t want you back
Cause it’s not about love
Just dont tell me that…“
