On November 6 1984, Madonna’s Like A Virgin was released as the lead single from the album of the same name. The b-side for Like A Virgin was Stay.
Billy Steinberg reflected on the recording process and commented that:
“When Madonna recorded it, even as our demo faded out, on the fade you could hear Tom (Kelly) saying, “When your heart beats, and you hold me, and you love me…” That was the last thing you heard as our demo faded. Madonna must have listened to it very, very carefully because her record ends with the exact same little ad-libs that our demo did. That rarely happens that someone studies your demo so carefully that they use all that stuff. We were sort of flattered how carefully she followed our demo on that.“
