Baz Luhrmann – Everybody’s Free to Wear Sunscreen

This speech / video came out in 1999. I was 15/16, and did not really get its meaning. I always liked the music though, and I remembered it when I stumbled across it recently. Wear Sunscreen or the Sunscreen Speech are the common names of an essay actually called “Advice, like youth, probably just wasted on the young” written by Mary Schmich and published in the Chicago Tribune as a column in 1997.

The most popular and well-known form of the essay is the successful music single released in 1999, credited to Baz Luhrmann. Its a great speech about living right, and living well. I’m sure a lot of us can see things in this that are very relevant.
