Baz Luhrmann – Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)
This is a tune we remember with some serious nostalgia.
The song is predominantly a spoken word lecture on the things about your youth you should cherish.
It’s genuinely heartfelt and made all the more poignant by the gospel vocals.
The sung vocals are of course from Luhrmann’s own remix of Rozalla’s Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good) from the movie Romeo & Juliet, which he also directed.
It hits with even more nostalgia now that we’re older as it’s all true, we really should have paid more attention to its message.
Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen) reached number 1 in the UK charts in 1999.
BC-52s – (Meet) The Flintstones
Every now and then you just need a classic kids TV theme tune and what better excuse than a new movie.
The BC-52s were obviously legendary rock band The B-52s who brought their classic sound to this new version.
The video featured the band in Bedrock along with the cast of the film.
It’s the definitive version of the tune and always goes down well at a kid’s party.
(Meet) The Flintstones reached number 3 in the UK charts in 1993.
Mighty Morph’n Power Rangers – Power Rangers
Did someone say kids’ TV theme songs?

The track was actually performed by Aaron Waters-The Mighty RAW and produced by Stock & Aitken.
Power Rangers reached number 3 in the UK charts in 1994.
