I couldn't resist sharing with you this appropriate theme song for Madame Eliza Jumel, titled "Sleep Peaceful, Mr. Used-to-Be." It's from the 1946 musical St. Louis Woman, but could equally be a eulogy for Aaron Burr. Sung over a corpse, it ends with the triumphant words "But you’re never in the world going to get the best of anybody anymore."
