"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:
“Did Johnny look flashy?
Yes, his white-on-white shirt and tie were luminous.
His trousers were creased like knives to the tops of his shoes
And his yellow straw hat came down to his dark glasses.”
—David Wagoner (b. 1926)
“Dont order any black things. Rejoice in his memory; and be radiant: leave grief to the children. Wear violet and purple.... Be patient with the poor people who will snivel: they dont know; and they think they will live for ever, which makes death a division instead of a bond.”
—George Bernard Shaw (18561950)
