The Death Twitch : Holy freaking good god I remember when this was a popular track on the local FM. Couldn't believe this spoken song was big on radio yet it was way better than most of the BS out at that time.  I do vividly remember being a 19 year old at the time and thinking 'This sounds like important advice I may want to keep in mind.' 

Jarrod Thorson : Funny how 16 years later I remember hearing this song on the radio and now its true life.

Davis Fountain : this is so true.. graduated in 1999.. Ugh.. I feel old

KiloFeenix : i've always loved this song i was spose to graduate in 04 and this song came out in 99 its 2016 and still holds so much meaning. i listen to this song at least once a year to instill a sense of being and meaning in my life, it tells me that you cant accomplish everything you hope to but you can at least do one thing in your life that matters.

Ruth Marland : Well I'm 51 years young and I can't Recall this as the younger adults have. Yes all of this is true. Life is hard however worth living, never forget to laugh or dance, although I do. Perfect words to refresh my Outlook. Thanks to my 33 year young son who sent me the lunk. I love you, Kristopher. MoM

Joel T : Chris Rock said it better "to the GED class of 1999. no matter what a stripper tells you, there is no sex in the champagne room!"

Tim Gavord : I remember this years ago. it's so great. I'm 48 and it's so true.

Last Boy Scout : when i first heard this song in 99' ( I was 17 ) I liked it. I'm 30 now...I love it.

jimmykicker7775 : Powerful

Trevor Quinlan : I graduated from high school in 99! Good times!

Sherron Brown : This is beautiful... It saddens me that there are no people of color!  The advice is ageless and timeless, and it goes across culture boundaries as well... It would be nice if non-white people were also reflected in this video.  Everyone wants to see themselves as a part of something that feels so good!!!!

TorchwoodUK : this song is good, but I am slimmer now at 29 than I was at 18

Zara Swan : I have listened to this track every five years for 20 years and it just gets better with age lol zx

Clinton Murphy : This is for all of us class of 1999! We all have wives/husbands/significant others and kids now... (or not). BUT WE ARE THE BEST! GO CLASS OF 99!

aj palkow : The first time I heard this I was 25 years old and driving in a rental car in Sydney Australia when it came on the radio- it brought tears to my eyes- Sixteen years later at age 41 it still does~ 

Maor Malik : so genius

Joe SushiJoe Kelly : This is all true. I'm in my 30's. this is the best graduation speech ever

Cozumel Girl : It makes me sad people worry about skin color while watching this. If you look carefully everyone has color. We all have more in common than not. I vaguely remember hearing this as a minor hit in California a loooong time ago and just randomly found it on the radio the other day. Had to share it with wife/kids. Great perspective. Cheers, bill

MikaelaRose : Pretty moving.. Scary to know life catches up with you before you have a chance to understand it

Patrick Grier : I was the class of 1999. Best ERA ever!!!

lee Lewis : I love this song, I think it had the best lyrics ever wrote, and it's all true to life, take the advice as much as you can recycle and use it in your lives take care all who hear and read it.

sarah coz : This takes me back to my twelve year old self nostalgic

Rusty R3volva : I'm kinda glad I graduated high school in 1999... How I miss being younger.

Davis Fountain : please ALWAYS DO! keep your skin hydrated Drink lots of water NOW minimize soft drinks and alcohol when you hit 30 you will be thanking your lucky stars :)

Angie Mulroy : :) :) :) :)

tehspyder007 : I still tear up when i hear this

zachariah dane : One of my favourite raps of all time. I remember hearing this in the car on the radio when I was 11 or 12. I took most of it to heart, but missed a few crucial bits of wisdom. C'est le vivre.

john lauby : I put it on multiple times daily when kiteboarding anywhere.  LiG.

Josh Murphy : I love this video, I try to watch it as much as possible. It's a huge confidence booster.

Audie Lockhart : of all the advise I've got this is the best 

RottenDoctorGonzo : I'm 31 and my whole life I thought of myself as a fat f***. Just last week I saw a photo of myself aged 16. It's true - I wasn't fat.

David Fernandez : He was dead wrong about the sunscreen but right about everything else.

Angel rose : I was 17 when this came out. I wish I had listened to the part about keeping good friends even though your life is in different stages.... This song is so bittersweet it makes me teary-eyed

Matt Grey : This started off as just an article by Mary Schmich written in 1997. She actually won a Pulitzer Prize in 2012.
