* In "Wrote My Way Out" from ''Music/TheHamiltonMixtape'', the line "I know abuela's never going to win the lottery" references the plot of ''Theatre/InTheHeights'', Creator/LinManuelMiranda's production immediately prior to ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'' that centered around a lottery winner from a Hispanic neighborhood. In the context of "Wrote My Way Out," it makes the point that Hispanics are never going to find prosperity by luck, so it's up to Lin-Manuel Miranda to help and represent them through his writing.

** ''The Division Bell'' is filled to the brim with musical and lyrical allusions to past works. "Cluster One" sounds similar to "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" (it was written as a tribute to Syd Barrett), "Keep Talking" has a synth solo similar to "Run Like Hell" and a talk-box effect similar to "Pigs (Three Different Ones)", "What Do You Want from Me" has a groove similar to "Have A Cigar", and "High Hopes" is reminiscent of "Fat Old Sun" and "Grantchester Meadows". Allusions to "the wall" coming down on "A Great Day For Freedom" are by WordOfGod, ''not'' about TheWall, nor Roger's Berlin "Wall" concert, but it can be easily interpreted that way.
