“Remember Me”, sung by Grammy Award-winner, Miguel, and Natalia Lafourcade and written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, took home the Oscar for Best Original Song last night for the 90th Academy Awards Show. This authentic and cosmic musical selection won within a category that had many brilliantly captivating and soul inspiring contenders: Mary J. Blige’s “Mighty River” (Mudbound), Sufjan Stevens’ “Mystery of Love” (Call Me By Your Name), “This Is Me” (The Greatest Showman), and Common and Diane Warren’s, “Stand Up for Something” (Marshall).
A magical and majestic song with a purpose that spans well beyond this physical plane, “Remember Me”, is the theme song for the Animated Pixar movie, Coco. Coco, explores the world of our ancestors in the afterlife, which is rather spiritually progressive. Everything in our world is energy and Conservation Of Energy explains, that energy can neither be created nor destroyed; rather, it can only be transformed from one form to another. Consequently, it only makes sense that when people that we love and cherish are no longer bounded by this material world and physical plane therefore transcending, they live on while still connected to the memories you hold in your heart and eternal being.
Last night I had never heard of “Remember Me” was; but today, not only do I appreciate the beautifully written song and the esoteric message it embodies, but I also am enamored with how the song coupled with the message from, Coco, reminds us that what matters most in life are the people that project nothing but love & light to your inner being; for that energy, is the only thing that you can take with you beyond this physical experience on planet earth.
DEEP 👀 I know. Life is DEEP. And Deep calls to deep🙌.
Everyone who had a role in “Remember Me” manifesting itself into our experience, you get the heART of Cool STAMP!
💜Love & Light☀,
