Does anybody remember this song? Every few years I re-discover it, because it is so full of such great advice.
Wanna know a little background about this song?
Wear Sunscreen or the Sunscreen are the common names of an essay titled “Advice, like youth, probably just wasted on the young” written by Mary Schmich and published in the Chicago Tribune as a column in 1997, but often erroneously attributed to a commencement speech by author Kurt Vonnegut. Both its subject and tone are similar to the 1927 poem “Desiderata“. The most popular and well-known form of the essay is the successful music single “Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)“, released in 1998, by Baz Luhrmann.
