Memoirs of a Gaijin Playlist

“My Shot” performed by Lin Manuel Miranda in Hamilton: An America Musical

Just like JP did with his J-Pop song, Valerie has finally added a second Musical song to the playlist! I’m kicking myself for not adding this sooner, but Valerie has beaten me to it.

“I feel like this song is basically us in JET. As expats here to teach, we are taking our shot and making sure not to throw it away. We may have come from different places but we are all taking our own shots and rising up.

We don’t know what’s coming but we are all holding on to our opportunity, and we’ll each have to wait and see how the history books mention us later.”

This song went along with this week’s post.
