"Advice, like youth, probably just wasted on the young"


"Advice, like youth, probably just wasted on the young", commonly known by the title "Wear Sunscreen", is an essay written as a hypothetical commencement speech by columnist Mary Schmich, originally published in 1997 in the Chicago Tribune. The essay, gives various slices of advice on how to live a happier life and avoid modern day frustrations. The essay later became the basis for a spoken word song by Baz Luhrmann, "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)", also known as "The Sunscreen Song". Typical 90's feel to the video and the beat, but actually a great piece of spoken word!
