Trying to find Graduation song from 1997

I'm trying to find the "graduation song" that was played frequently on the radio around 1997 or so. It was basically a poetic speech put to music that offered cliched advice on life. If I recall it came out around 1997 and was originally from Austrailia, and the speaker or musician in the song was "I P" something or other. Tried doing a search but came up with nothing. figured somebody on here might recall it. Anyone?

I think he's talking about "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)" by Baz Luhrmann.

Yeah, that Baz Luhrmann.

I think neatMCsammer is correct. That VITAMIN C track/album didn't come out until 1999.

For what it's worth, the "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)" song was originally a collumn written by Mary Schmich of the Chicago Tribune.

I don't think the Vitamin C song was "originally from Australia", so we can rule that one out.
