|Dan Seals singles chronology|
"Bop" is a song written by Paul Davis and Jennifer Kimball, and recorded by American country music artist Dan Seals. It was released in October 1985 as the second single from the album Won't Be Blue Anymore. It reached #1 on the Country singles chart in early 1986. "Bop" was his second number one hit, but his first as a solo artist. It was a major crossover hit as well, peaking at #42 on the US Hot 100, and at #10 on the US Adult Contemporary Chart.
The music video was directed by George Bloom. It shows an older couple preparing to travel to an armory. It concurrently shows flashbacks of the couple 30 years earlier. One of the highlights in the video is the 30-year flashback of the couple in a 1955 Ford Thunderbird that transforms 30 years later into the 1985 Ford Thunderbird. Towards the end of the video, it shows the couple in their elderly stages dancing at the armory along with many others with Seals performing the song onstage.
The video has also been included in Seals' 1991 video compilation, A Portrait, which also included the video for "They Rage On," plus three other videos for Seals' "God Must Be a Cowboy," "Everything That Glitters (Is Not Gold)" and "Big Wheels in the Moonlight" that were filmed especially for the compilation.
