I remember when I first heard "Holiday" back in 1983, I had my car radio set to my favorite soul music station, and I said to myself: This black chick is going to make it big. I was wrong about Madonna`s ethnicity, but I was right about her career taking off like a rocket.
Madonna went on to have a gazillion hits, but "Holiday" remains my favorite. For Throwback Thursday Madonna joined Jimmy Fallon and The Roots to sing her classic hit using a plethora of classroom instruments.
You can turn this world around And bring back all those happy days Put your troubles down It`s time to celebrate But you can`t turn back the hands of time.
Madonna and I were both young when "Holiday " hit the charts, but now I`m too old to bust a move, and Madonna, legend though she may be, is no longer musically relevant.
The original recording of "Holiday " was awesome, and the stripped-down classroom rendition was delightful and entertaining, but I feel sad for myself and Madonna when I witness her trying so desperately to appear young.
