"Wear My Hat" is a song by English singer Phil Collins released as the fifth single from his album Dance into the Light. It was only released in the United Kingdom and peaked at #43 on the UK Singles Chart. Collins said in an interview that the song and its music video is about the pressures of fame and how some fans grow an attachment to their favourite stars. The video for the song featured actor Danny DeVito.
The song was played throughout the Trip into the Light World Tour and on the First Final Farewell Tour. A live performance of the song was also recorded for Top of the Pops. However it was not aired (at the time) most likely due to its very low charting position, but it was then was shown in full on an episode of Top of the Pops 2 several years later.
Famous quotes containing the words hat and/or wear:
“Lord Hamlet, with his doublet all unbraced,
No hat upon his head, his stockings fouled,
Ungartered, and down-gyved to his ankle,
Pale as his shirt, his knees knocking each other,
And with a look so piteous in purport
As if he had been loosed out of hell
To speak of horrors.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“And still we wear our uniforms, follow
The cracked cry of the bugles, comb and brush
Our pride and prejudice, doctor the sallow
Initial ardor, wish to keep it fresh.
Still we applaud the Presidents voice and face.”
—Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
