I found a new Lin-Manuel Miranda song to play on repeat

I am actually pretty excited for Moana anyway, but I got even more so with what's implied by the lyrics here:

"I wish I could be the perfect daughter, but I come back to the water ...
I can lead with pride, I can make us strong ... but the voice inside sings a different song
What is wrong with me?"

a. family expectations vs individual wishes is my jam
b. she's expected to be the next leader (contrast with Brave, and Merida merely expected to elevate the next leader by marriage)

Also I just really love this song, it's very earwomy but in a good way, and a completely different feel from Hamilton & In The Heights

I take it you know about the new "Hamilton Mixtape" he launched today?

Yep, including that the launch only applies in the US & Canada. Apparently it will be available for preorder here at midnight tonight. (Whether the two preview tracks that everyone over there is getting when they preorder will also be available here is not yet clear.)
