Satisfied from Hamilton

I felt overwhelmed listening to Satisfied, the some is performed right after Hamilton marries Eliza and Angelica, who loves Hamilton from afar, gives a toast to the couple at their wedding. This is an extremely well-written song. Angelica sounds so effortlessly beautiful and smooth. Furthermore, the lyrics is so heart-tugging. “If I tell her that I love him she’d be silently resigned. He’d be mine. She would say ‘I’m fine.’ She’d be lying," she sings. The scene rewinds around Angelica taking us back to the beginning of Helpless, the fateful meeting of Hamilton and Schuyler but from Angelica’s perspective. Portions of the choreography from “Helpless” were rewinded, creating a mesmerizing waterfall effect. The flashback reveals that Angelica also fell in love with Hamilton. I can feel the pain she felt as she made the decision. It was such a monumentally painful and beautiful thing to do at the same time.
