this has the great spoken-word track "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)" on it.

This CD is more than just bedroom music!

"I will admit it that I, too, bought this CD for the Sunscreen song. I mean, c'mon, who had really heard of this artist? But after listening to this CD once, I was hooked. The pomp and circumstance this CD reveals is right up there with any classic dance album. Check out different versions of The Cardigan's "Lovefool" and Prince's "When Doves Cry," and Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time." They give the original songs a run for their money. And the mixture of original tracks infused with remixes is wonderful. One listen to Doris Day's "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps," and you will find the meaning of rejected love! The songs mostly come from the films that Buz directed, Strictly Ballroom and Romeo + Juliet. And if you haven't seen Ballroom, you are missing out! This CD is more than the sunscreen song, so take a gamble, you will be amazed the purchase will redeem itself in your CD carosel!"
Fantastic Album From A Modern Master

"If you've ever had the good fortune to see STRICLY BALLROOM, ROMEO + JULIET or MOULIN ROUGE, then you've been exposed to the pure visual and musical genius that is Baz Luhrmann. This pre-MOULIN ROUGE album covers a wonderfully wide range of music - mainly original and remixed music from Luhrmann's first two films, two of his theatrical productions for the Australian Opera (LA BOHEME & MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM), his production of HAIRCUT for the Sydney Theatre Company, and music from LAKE LOST.Fans of STRICTLY BALLROOM will again recognize the original versions of Doris Day's classic "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps" and Stanley Black's "Os Quindos De Ya Ya" as well as remixed versions of "Happy Feet," "Love Is In The Air" and Tara Morice's "Time After Time." ROMEO + JULIET lovers can hear fantastic remixed versions of "Young Hearts Run Free," "Everybody's Free," "When Doves Cry," and "Angel."The real treat for Baz Luhrmann fans, however, are the tracks from and inspired by his works for The Sydney Theatre Company and the Australian Opera. They range from the purely operatic "Che Gelida Manina" from LA BOHEME (which has since been brought to Broadway) to the fantastically funky electronic "Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In" from HAIRCUT.If you've ever seen and loved a Luhrmann film, you shouldn't be disappointed by this fantastic album. It celebrates the works you know and love and introduces you to this modern master's other, equally wonderful works."
