BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985
“Like a Surgeon” is a song by “Weird Al” Yankovic. It is a parody of “Like a Virgin” by Madonna.
Although Yankovic refuses to use parody ideas from other people, Madonna is partly responsible for “Like a Surgeon”. Madonna asked one of her friends how long it would take until Yankovic satirized her song “Like a Virgin” as “Like a Surgeon”. This friend was a mutual friend of Al’s manager, Jay Levey. When word got back to Yankovic, he decided it was a good idea and wrote the song. This is the only known time that Yankovic has gotten a parody idea directly from the original artist.
