    Yes, of course! For you, I have Holiday (1983).
    Holiday
    Celebrate
    Holiday
    Celebrate

    If we took a holiday
    Took some time to celebrate
    Just one day out of life
    It would be, it would be so nice

    Everybody spread the word
    We're gonna have a celebration
    All across the world
    In every nation
    It's time for the good times
    Forget about the bad times, oh yeah
    One day to come together to release the pressure
    We need a holiday

    If we took a holiday
    Took some time to celebrate (come on, let's celebrate)
    Just one day out of life (holiday)
    It would be, it would be so nice

    You 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, can make things better
    We need a holiday

    If we took a holiday (holiday)
    Took some time to celebrate (celebrate)
    Just one day out of life (just one day)
    It would be, it would be so nice

    Holiday
    Celebrate
    Holiday
    Celebrate

    If we took a holiday (oh yeah, oh yeah)
    Took some time to celebrate (come on, let's celebrate)
    Just one day out of life (holiday)
    It would be, it would be so nice

    Holiday (ooh yeah, ooh yeah)
    Celebrate (come on, let's celebrate)
    Holiday (just one day out of life)
    Celebrate


    And now just one more Madonna song left! Anyone? Anyone? :D

    You got it! Your song is La isla bonita (1986). :)
    ¿Cómo puede ser verdad? [How can it be true?]

    Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
    Just like I'd never gone, I knew the song
    Young girl with eyes like the desert
    It all seems like yesterday, not far away

    Tropical the island breeze, all of nature wild and free
    (Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah)
    This is where I long to be, La Isla Bonita [the beautiful island]
    And when the samba played, the sun would set so high
    (Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah)
    Ring through my ears and sting my eyes, your Spanish lullaby

    I fell in love with San Pedro
    Warm wind carried on the sea, he called to me
    Te dijo, "Te amo"
    I prayed that the days would last, they went so fast

    Tropical the island breeze, all of nature wild and free
    (Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah)
    This is where I long to be, La Isla Bonita
    And when the samba played, the sun would set so high
    (Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah)
    Ring through my ears and sting my eyes, your Spanish lullaby

    I want to be where the sun warms the sky
    When it's time for siesta, you can watch them go by
    Beautiful faces, no cares in this world
    Where a girl loves a boy, and a boy loves a girl

    Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
    It all seems like yesterday, not far away

    Tropical the island breeze, all of nature wild and free
    (Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah)
    This is where I long to be, La Isla Bonita
    And when the samba played, the sun would set so high
    (Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah)
    Ring through my ears and sting my eyes, your Spanish lullaby

    (Pa-pa-pa-pa-pa)
    Tropical the island breeze, all of nature wild and free
    (Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah)
    This is where I long to be, La Isla Bonita
    And when the samba played, the sun would set so high
    (Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah)
    Ring through my ears and sting my eyes, your Spanish lullaby

    La-la-la-la-la-la-la
    Te dijo, te amo [I say to you, I love you]
    La-la-la-la-la-la-la
    Él dijo que te ama [He says he loves you]
    Pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa (Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah)
    La Isla Bonita
    Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah
    Spanish lullaby

    It is my pleasure to announce that I, too, have finished my story for @Mira_Jade's most magnificent Tudor Roulette Challenge[face_party]

    The Legend of Pelican Mothers

    I loved every second of writing for this challenge, and I might just write a second story with my prompts (featuring the actual Mary I) if my muse decides to be especially cooperative about allowing my flighty inspirations to become concrete reality;)

    Woot! That's going in the index now! [face_dancing] =D=

    Yay! And I especially love that you took the legend that made the pelican such a fitting symbol for Queen Elizabeth and incorporated it into your story! How cool is that? [face_hypnotized] [face_love] =D=

    Yaaaaaas! Seconded, for sure! [face_mischief] [face_batting]

    @earlybird-obi-wan How exciting to see a story posted for the Edgar Allan Poe Poetry Challenge=D=

    I've added it to the index now:D

    And just as a small point of clarity, it's actually @Mira_Jade who is hosting the Tudor Roulette Challenge, but I know with all the Mini Games going on right now, it can be hard to keep track of who is hosting what challenge;)

    Can you take me off of this list, please? I've kind of lost interest (for the time being, at least). Thanks in advance and sorry for all of the trouble (though it was a good idea at the time, even if I misinterpreted how you were supposed to participate in this particular challenge).

    Yes, and it's no trouble at all. If you are inspired again in the future, I can add you back (But no worries if not; I understand that not every story idea ultimately works out) [:D]

    Finally, I've started a thing!

    My response to @earlybird-obi-wan 's The Cats challenge prompt "Sure He Is A Cat" is...

    Because Reasons, a silly rom-com that chronicles what led to Mara answering the door wearing Lando's shirt, and how it kept her and Luke apart for ten years.
