'Like A Virgin' is the first single by American singer Madonna from the album of the same name and was released on November 6th 1984 by Sire Records. Madonna's performance of this song at the 1984 MTV Video Music Awards made music history when she appeared in a bridal gown atop a giant wedding cake. 'Like A Virgin' became Madonna's first of 12 No.1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, remaining at the top for six consecutive weeks and eventually earning gold certification. The single also reached No.1 on the Hot Dance Club Play, and was her first top-ten hit on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Internationally, the song was a Top 5 hit and reached the top spot in numerous countries. In the UK it was a massive hit reaching No.3 and selling over 760,000 copies, becoming Madonna's second best-selling single in the UK. It was her first No.1 single in Australia, Canada, Italy and South Africa. The song would be her biggest selling and top-charting single worldwide until 'Like A Prayer' in 1989.
The music video, directed by Mary Lambert, was shot in Venice, Italy and partly in New York City in July 1984. It shows Madonna dancing on a gondola and running around in a wedding dress intercut with shots of a panting lion. The video's MTV world premiere took place on November 13th 1984 and became an instant hit.
