Baz Luhrmann - 'Everybody's Free to Wear Sunscreen' (1999)

It was the summer that was....1999. The climax of four years hard study (well almost!) had finally come. Our university days were now coming to a close and we had forged new friendships on a level never really expected before. The uncertainty of what lay ahead in the next few weeks, months, years was frightening.  One thing was obvious, our group was about to be split up, all venturing back across the country. Of course we all said we would remain in touch, but would we really? Then this song was released. It seemed to put everything in context and was like a final lesson releasing us into the real world. Essentially don't take things too seriously. Enjoy life and make the most of every opportunity. It was blue skies thinking and suddenly filled us all with a positive vibe once again!

Dashing! Ladies and gentlemen, Baz Luhrmann !

Cheers Reza, I remember this was a massive hit that summer. All my friends liked it, but it made me a little sad. There's a lot of good advice in there and some positive vibes too though!
