"To celebrate Madonna's 20th anniversary as the Queen of Pop, I have decided to try and review every Madonna single ever released. It'll be a long process, but I'll be very happy if I achieve it. I'm going to review them in order of their UK release, beginning with this - Holiday...
"Holiday" is perhaps one of the best known dance/pop party songs ever. The song has truly reached anthemic status, and charted at No.5 on VH1 UK's 100 Greatest Floorfillers. Released way back in January 1984, Holiday peaked at No.6 in the UK where it spent 11 weeks on the chart. The song has been re-issued twice in August 1985 and June 1991, peaking at No.2 and No.5 respectively.
Holiday is such a popular song because of its happy and trouble-free lyrics. The way the uptempo and light beat is arranged is instantly recognisable, and Madonna's vocals are totally unique to anything she has ever done before. The song begins with Madonna's proud statement "Holiday!" before going on to proclaim "Celebrate!" Simple yet effective, the song strikes a chord with every listener. The pure dizzy fun doesn't stop, as the song passes through many minutes without ever becoming boring. "If we took a holiday! Took some time to celebrate! Just one day out of life! It would be! It would be so nice!" croons Madge on one of the song's most famous verses. The repetition of lines never gets boring, and the rather long instrumentals between choruses and verses enhance the quality of the overall production factor.
Holiday is always a favourite amongst fans at Madonna's concerts. One has to witness her performance of it on her 1990 Blonde Ambition World Tour to truly appreciate the respect that this song has achieved. Make no mistake, this is a true classic."
Two good songs
