After seeing Pixar’s “Coco” the first time I couldn’t get the song “Remember Me” out of my head. It turns out neither could a lot of people. Some of them turned to their guitars and ukulele’s to recreate the moving song and uploaded them to YouTube. I spent a lot of time watching them this weekend and here are a few of my favorites:
