Coco [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

by: Michael Giacchino/Kristen Anderson-Lopez/Robert Lopez/Germaine Franco/Adrián Molina

The 2017 Disney Pixar musical-fantasy Coco revolves around 12-year-old Miguel, an aspiring musician who is forced to contend with family secrets, betrayal, and a curse in pursuit of a life with music. Music plays an important role not only in the film's plot but in the telling of the story, with an official soundtrack that includes over 70 minutes of original music. Included are songs by Germaine Franco and Adrian Molina, an original score by Michael Giacchino (Up, Ratatouille, The Incredibles), and song centerpiece "Remember Me," written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Among the several singers featured on the recording are lead voice-actors Gael Garcia Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, and Anthony Gonzalez as Miguel. "Remember Me" undergoes a handful of transformations on the soundtrack, including its introduction by Bratt as fictional Mexican singing star Ernesto de la Cruz, and a version by real-world pop stars Miguel and Natalia Lafourcade. Later in the track list, Giacchino's orchestral/folk score is steeped in Latin tradition, from mariachi to flamenco guitar and bolero. ~ Marcy Donelson
