Let’s be honest, I’ve been listening to Christmas music all year long. That’s where you’ll definitely find me the next few months. But of course, before I fully dive in, there’s some music I discovered this month.
In the Heights
Before Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda made In the Heights. I’ve listened to the soundtrack before and liked it. But for some reason I decided to take another listen to it and grown to love it. I love the mix of Spanish and it’s a musical about just living life within the culture of Washington Heights. It’s a fun listen because it’s easy to relate and it just shows what happens in regular life in the heights.
Hillsong | The Peace Project
Let me talk about Christmas music for a second. Hillsong came out with a Christmas album this month and it’s amazing! They do a lot of the classics but give it a huge twist so they feel fresh. The song “Seasons” is beautiful and they “Silent Night” with “Saviour King” and it’s amazing. It’s going to be on repeat for the next couple of months.
Another Lin-Manuel Miranda gem that I just discovered is 21 Chump Street, specifically “What the Heck I Gotta Do?” That song is so catchy and has been stuck in my head for days. If you guys don’t already know I’m a huge fan of Jordan Fisher. Fun fact: He left Hamilton exactly 3 days before I saw it in New York. I’m low key bitter. But anyway, he has a new song called “Mess” and it’s a bop. I have such high hopes for this kid, he’s going to be great y’all.
