I love Hamilton but everything released after the musical has just been awful. Lin needs to just stop.

I still haven't heard/seen anything to do with that play. Not really a musical guy. Lyrics are always too expositional, which you can hear in this song as well. I like the song though, specifically the chorus.

Finally listened to Decemberists yesterday via my new roommate forcing me to listen and I couldn't be more thankful.

@pjquinones747 I know that feeling dude, the main positive of a yearlong relationship I had in my early 20s is remembered fondly solely for the fact that she introduced me to the decemberists.

idgaf if it's not trendy, this is a pretty damn good song whose chorus is infinitely singable

The first 20 seconds sounds like it could be a pretty good REM song.
