On Air Now
Fans of the musical Hamilton will be fully aware how incredible it is. Everything about it is beautiful, clever and thought-provoking - from the songs to the staging and all the other minute details in between that you only spot on your 8,th viewing. One number that's particularly mind-blowing is 'Satisifed'. Going back in time to that point, Angelica sings about their connection - before noticing that her sister was 'Helpless' over him, and introduced the pair who hit it off immediately and married shortly after. Eagle-eyed fans of the production spotted that the song 'Satisfied' sees the cast completely recreate the staging for the previous songs whilst Angelica is singing about going back in time - but now, a fan has put the numbers side-by-side in a video to show just what an amazing job the cast did.

But did you know it also references classical music? But then at 45 secs another instrument comes in. This song is sung by King George of England. He stands for everything Hamilton is against — monarchy, American being ruled by the King of England and generally the old way of doing things. So it makes sense that his songs are from a completely different soundworld. Lin-Manuel Miranda himself said he wanted the song to sound like a Beatles song. And that insistent accompaniment certainly has something of the 'Eleanor Rigby' about it. Gilbert and Sullivan knew a thing or two about putting on blockbuster shows.
