Today in Madonna History: March 1, 1984


On March 1 1984, Madonna performed her massive dance hit Holiday on the German TV show Formel Eins (Formula 1) in Munich.

Do you remember the first time you heard Holiday?

  1. I remember “Lucky Star” and “Borderline” on the radio in ’84, but I don’t remember ever hearing “Holiday” getting airplay until the early 90s. Now it seems like the song that is heard most often from that album.

  2. Sure I Heard it many times but I didn’t truly appreciate Holiday until I saw Reinvention Tour at Capital One on June 13, 2004! As the encore and final number of the night, Madonna danced and sang beautifully when she cried out “Sing Holiday!/Reinvent Yourself!” I did just that and I thank Madonna from my Rebel Heart!

  3. In 1984 I video-recorded Holiday — on my Betamax tape machine yah — the Top of the Pops (UK) video of Madonna lip syncing and dancing Holiday with Christopher and Erika shaking their hips on backup, mirrors all round. I learned the Holiday choreography by pausing and slow playing the Beta tape.. Aah, Christopher Ciconne on backup dancing. Those were the daaazzze.
