Radio 56, side A, track 10: “Like A Virgin” by Madonna, #7 on The Top 90 of the ’80s

Madonna - Like A VirginOh, Madonna, I actually wasn’t too familiar with this song.  I mean, I was familiar with it.  Everybody was when it came out, even if they were living under a rock.  Which for all intents and purposes I was.  But this song came out before I had access to MTV or before I had access to spending money to buy my own music.  And I guarantee I would have bought this one, just for the album cover alone.  But honestly, the only reason I know how this song goes at all is because a cassette that I DID own was called “Dare To Be Stupid” by “Weird Al” Yankovic, and one of the songs on it was “Like A Surgeon”.  While I’ve probably actually really listened to “Like A Virgin” only a handful of times, I’ve listened to “Like A Surgeon” a thousand thousand times.  Honestly, Madonna, when I’m listening to this one, a lot of the time the lyrics from “Like A Surgeon” will slip in.  Wait, was that sentence dirty?  Well, now that I’ve made it dirty, yes.  Point is, Madonna, as much as I love your version, “Weird Al” was there first with his.  Jeez, that sounded dirty, too. . .

“Like A Virgin”

I made it through the wilderness

Somehow I made it throooough

Didn’t know how lost I was until I found you

I was beat

Incomplete

I was sad and blue, but you made me feel

Yeah, you maaaade me feel
Shiny and neeeew

Hoo! Like a virgin

Touched for the very first time

Like a viiiiirgin

When your heart beats

Next to mine, gonna give ya all my love, boy

‘Cause only love can laaast

Ya so fine

And you’re mine

Touched for the very first time

Like a viiiiirgin

With your heartbeat
Next to miiiiiiine

‘Til the end of time, ’cause you make me feel
