Biography

In 1999, the director Baz ‘Moulin Rouge’ Luhrmann had a UK surprise chart-topping one hit wonder. The wording became an urban legend known as the “Sunscreen Graduation Speech”. The legend says the wording was from a graduation speech at MIT while in truth they were a journalist writing what she would say at such a speech, but either way their insight isn’t lost. The lyrics were actually taken from a column published in The Chicago Tribune in 1997. The song even had a seal of approval from the Bishop of Liverpool who said at the time that he believed ‘Everybody’s Free’ carried an important moral message.
