Weird Al Yankovic is widely known for his good-natured habit remixing songs with new lyrics to make them funny, however when it came to Hamilton, Yankovic played it kind of straight. He kept the lyrics intact, but added his own unique spin with a fabulous polka beat to a medley of songs from the show’s soundtrack, thus creating “The Hamilton Polka”.
Listen to ‘The Hamilton Polka’, a remixed medley of ‘Hamilton’ hits, featuring Weird Al’s twist on songs like ‘My Shot,’ ‘Wait For It,’ ‘The Schuyler Sisters,’ and more.
Lin-Manuel and Jimmy each recorded themselves listening and reacting to Weird Al’s “Hamilton Polka” for the first time.
