There’s a good chance a song is going to be amazing any time Jack Antonoff or Denmark’s MO are attached to it. And a song from both of them is just a no-brainer.
This song makes me happy in a way that I can’t put into words. And just picturing Jonathan Groff in an oversized crown (as King George) brings an ear-to-ear smile to my face. Even if it’s not exactly the nicest song lyrically it’s just so upbeat and fun.
That said, I have not yet seen this musical live however after watching the AMAZING Tony Awards hosted by the brilliant James Corden last night, I skimmed through the soundtrack and …holy expletives! The music is incredible. I’ve already been a fan of Jonathan Groff’s from his Glee days so yea I’m hooked. That voice!
Right now, I adore this song. I want to play it ridiculously loud and dance like I’ve never danced before. And not give a shit who’s watching me… But it’s a JT song which means they will probably overplay it on the radio.
