While fun and frothy on the surface, "Holiday" actually is a brilliant slice of peace-ambassador pop- about a lot more than taking a vacation, getting together and having a party. As esteemed critic Dave Marsh noted, it was the perfect track for the Reagen-Bush era. Consider these sections:
"Everybody spread the word/We're gonna have a celebration/All across the world/in every nation.it's time foe the good times/forget about the bad times/One day to come together, we can make things better... We can turn this world around, and bring back all of those happy days/Put your troubles down/It's time to celebrate/Let love shine and we will find a way to come together, make things better...
Who better than Madonna, thew woman who led her own cultural revolution, to score her first notable hit with such a great, universal underlying meaning?
