Okay, to clear this up: The text for "Everybody's Free to Wear Sunscreen" was NOT from a Vonnegut graduation speech (as has been widely spread around the Internet). It was written as an editorial on June 1, 1997 by the Chicago Tribune columnist Mary Schmich. It's online in the Tribune archives here: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/columnists/schmich/0,1122,SAV-9706010178,00.html. Somebody started spreading the rumor that it was a graduation speech by Vonnegut, and the writing styles are similar so I can see why people believed it (including me). But nevertheless, it's pretty entertaining, and got passed around a lot. Baz then set the words to music and put it on an album of his. So no more rumors, okay? =)

the story here is that "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)" is actually a remix/reinterpretation of "Everybody's Free (To Feel Good)", from the Romeo + Juliet soundtrack, albeit a pretty extensive one. the album that the sunscreen song comes from is a collection that baz put together of remixes and such of songs from his films, theatre, and opera work. (culled from the liner notes of baz luhrman's "Something for Everybody")

The song "Everybody's Free" was originally Bby Rozalla and was quite a hit in the UK in the Early 1990's. It was a dance song and the version in Romeo and Juliet is a Parody of it.
