So, without further ado, let's check out some of the INCREDIBLE mashups some fun people on the internet have created.

1. The heartbreak of "Burn" with "Waiting On A Miracle" is a real self-love journey. The ties between these two songs is truly beautiful.

2. The word count on this song! The drama of it all!

3. Here's a longer version with the music from "Burn" incorporated within "Waiting On A Miracle" which has just as big of an impact. Did you even notice they're two separate instrumentals?

4. "Satisfied" and "What Else Can I Do?" — are you kidding?! They're so consistent musically with each other and it creates a seamless song. They fit together perfectly!

12. I loved this "Spanglish" rendition of "We Don't Talk About Bruno" so much that I had to include it even though it doesn't include any songs from *Hamilton —* which is what you're here for.

Tell me you're singing along to these mashups? I know I am!
