As hard as it is to believe, Madonna has not been around forever, and on this day in 1984 she made her debut on "American Bandstand". Madonna performed her hit, "Holiday" which was released the year before and peaked at #16 on the "Billboard" charts. And not to give away my age, but I remember playing the song when it was new!

Here is a vintage video clip of a young Dick Clark (he always looked young) introducing a young Madonna (and she was) singing, "Holiday"

My daughter loves Madonna and has seen her perform live in concert several times, and she always says the show is incredible!
