The Best of American Bandstand: September 19, 1987

By Garrett Godwin

We`re goin` hoppin (hop!)
We`re goin` hoppin` today
Where things are poppin` (pop!) the Philadelphia way
We`re gonna drop (drop!) in on all the music they play
On the Bandstand
                        - Barry Manilow

This is the all-new American Bandstand -- now in syndication, with guest stars Jody Watley performing her Top 10 hit, "Don`t You Want Me":

Dan Hill (w/Vonda Shepard) his #2 smash, "Can`t We Try":

Future Saturday Night Live and sitcom player David Spade (Just Shoot Me, 8 Simple RulesRules of Engagement) stopped by, along with a very special surprise guest -- Moonlighting star and future action hero Bruce Willis. 

And here`s your host -- America`s oldest living teenager -- Mr. Dick Clark

For now, Garrett Godwin, so long!
