Been geeking out on "The Hamilton Polka" lately - a 5 minute polka party that's a Reader's Digest version of the musical, more or less. As goofy as a polka is nowadays, it really catches some of the emotional tones of the lyrics.

I found a cool Rolling Stone chat with Yankovic and Miranda and was excited by "RS: Is your band on it?" "Yankovic: They are. My drummer, my guitar player plays banjo on it. My bass player plays bass, though the bass is overwhelmed by the tuba, which is playing the same part."
