'Weird' Al Yankovic takes on 'Hamilton' with brilliant polka medley


BY MELISSA RUGGIERI/AJC Music Scene

With the arrival of "Hamilton" in Atlanta creeping closer (and yes, I will have ticket on-sale information for you soon ), what better way to spend a few minutes on a Friday afternoon than with music from the show and the brilliance of "Weird" Al Yankovic?

The "Hamilton Polka" arrived today as the latest official Hamildrop. If you want to know which songs are included in the rapid-fire medley, you can read them below the YouTube video. For those who would rather identify as Yankovic zips through them, have fun!

Also, Yankovic and "Hamilton" mastermind Lin-Manuel Miranda will appear together Friday night on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon."
