La Isla Bonita

La Isla Bonita by Madonna was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, April 25, 1987 spending 2 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. "La Isla Bonita" means "The Beautiful Island" in Spanish. In the song, Madonna sings about the beautiful island of San Pedro, where she longs to be. San Pedro is not a real island. This song provided yet another look and sound for Madonna, as it had a Spanish theme. Songwriter and producer Patrick Leonard wrote this for Michael Jackson, but Jackson claimed he didn't like the title and turned down the song. Leonard then offered it to Madonna, who rewrote some of the lyrics in her style.
