"Holiday" is the third single release by Madonna, and the debut single release of her first album which bore her name. After the minor success of "Everybody" and the double-A sided 12" single of "Burning Up"/"Physical Attraction", Sire greenlighted Madonna to record a full album, with "Holiday" being the lead single to promote it. "Everybody", "Physical Attraction", and "Burning Up" were included on the album as well.
Holiday is the third full album from The Magnetic Fields. The album was originally released in 1994 on Feel Good All Over. Merge Records reissued it in 1999.
"Holiday" is an anthemic song penned by Rivers Cuomo for Weezer's "The Blue Album" in 1994. Cuomo wrote the song, along with "In the Garage", after signing onto a major label (Geffen) in 1993. Cuomo used his excitement to write the song, which features a Beach Boys-esque breakdown after the second chorus.
