“Remember Me” is a song from the animated movie “Coco“. It is a poignant and emotional song that is central to the plot of the film.
In the movie, “Remember Me” is first heard as a lullaby that the character Mama Coco’s father, Hector, sings to her as a child. Years later, the song takes on a deeper meaning as it becomes a symbol of remembrance and connection between the living and the dead during the Mexican holiday of Dia de los Muertos.
The song is performed in different versions throughout the movie, including a lively, mariachi-inspired rendition and a heartfelt, acoustic guitar version. The lyrics of the song speak to the themes of family, love, and the power of memory and connection.
“Remember Me” was written by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, who are known for their work on other Disney movies such as “Frozen” and “Moana“. The song won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2018, and has since become one of the most beloved and iconic songs in the Disney animated canon.
