You Wear It Well

You Wear It Well by Rod Stewart was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, September 2, 1972 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. "You Wear It Well" was written as a collaboration between Rod Stewart and Martin Quittenton. You'll know Martin Quittenton from Steamhammer, as well as his frequent work with Rod Stewart. The subject of this song is Stewart writing a letter to an old flame - and having a pretty good attitude about it. What she is wearing well might be her current life, the years passing by, or the birthday gown he once bought her. This song falls squarely into Stewart's central body of work, as another folksy "blue-eyed soul" ballad. You'll notice how similar this song sounds to another Stewart hit, "Maggie May," from the previous Rod Stewart album Every Picture Tells a Story. Well, Quittenton collaborated with Stewart on that one, too!
