A remix of Madonna's cover was included in her ballad compilation album Something to Remember. The original and the remixed version of the Madonna song differ in that the latter uses more classical instruments.
The version also received a number of club remix treatments. Critics were not impressed with the version present in Like a Virgin , calling it "awful", while they warmed to the version present in Something to Remember. However, it was a commercial disappointment, reaching a peak of only 78 on the Billboard Hot It was promoted by a music video shot by Jean-Baptiste Mondino , which portrayed Madonna in an empty suite of an abandoned hotel, and was shot in a single take.
Producer Norman Whitfield had always wanted to work with Paul Buckmaster , the British arranger and composer. One day he called Buckmaster and invited him to work on some recordings he had finished. Buckmaster found that Gregory was under medication from overuse of drugs and "was in considerable discomfort, if not in outright pain. He didn't write a song and dance about his pain, but I remember him sitting at the piano and wincing.
So before jumping on the thing that Miles was merely indulging himself and writing, one has to remember that the guy was in a lot of pain. LinnDrum had been used sparingly in their previous single "Do Your Dance", but in "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" its use was more spontaneous, which Dave Thompson, author of Funk noted as if "it virtually duetted with Dickey, creating one of the most distinctive records of the year—and one of the most imitated of the age.
Buckmaster recalled: "I was over at [Gene's] place almost every day with Norman, and some days I stayed away to write, or to mix the music.
Gene had given me the keys to his apartment, and also let me use the piano to record the song. I didn't want to work on at Miles' because his piano was falling to bits. It was released as the first of the EMI Digital series in a limited edition 12" single. Their arrangement had the vocals mixed over a house -influenced backing track. A reggae version was released in by dancehall artist Bounty Killer and Swedish singer Robyn. The song peaked at number 21 on the Australian Kent Music Report.
Records, the First 50 Years , he recalled:. I was driving into work one day and heard it on the radio, I called producer Nile Rodgers and Madonna, they were in the studio. I said, 'I have an idea,. Why don't you try and record a version of it for Like a Virgin? Initially both Rodgers and Madonna were apprehensive of tackling an already well-known ballad, but in the last minute they decided that if Madonna wanted to bring diversity to the album, there could be no better song than "Love Don't Live Here Anymore".
The version was released as the second single from the album in North America and the third single in Europe and Australia. Madonna's version of the song begins with the sound of acoustic guitars and synth strings. Madonna's voice sounds high-pitched, eluding the deeper resonance of the tune. Towards the end, Madonna sings the song like a soul singer and the song ends with a gasp of breath. Rodgers recalled: "Madonna had never performed with a live orchestra before.
I was very much into doing everything live, so I just said, 'Madonna, you go out there and sing and we will follow you. She sang and she was overcome with emotions and she started crying, but I left it on the record. The remix was quite different from the version. As the song progresses, the sound of the violin fades in and the drum machine starts, and the piano is played along with it. The violin again fades in as Madonna sings "Through the windmills of my eye, Everyone can see the loneliness inside me.
Madonna's voice was paired with an energetic beat, coupled with vibrant organ lines and blipping synth effects. The remixes were released as promotional 12" and CD singles on May 6, Author Rikky Rooksby wrote in his book The Complete Guide to the Music of Madonna that Madonna's singing in the song "deserved a commendation for bravery and was a sign that she was going to set herself challenges".
Both arrangements perfectly suit her vocal, which is rife with emotional belts and theatrical gasps. The bottom line is that this will likely be another smash for an artist whose stock as a credible musical entity deservedly rises with each release". His five mixes lean largely towards the middle of the club road". Liz Smith , while reviewing the Something to Remember album in Newsday , felt that all of Madonna's vocal trainings that she received while shooting for the film Evita , had "paid off, because the La M's second single sounds wonderful, and is a step up from the previous haunting 'You'll See'".
Considine highlighted Madonna's "soulful intensity" on the song. But it still works". It was a Bandits Production. Hence, she felt great stress while shooting it, which led her to forget the lyrics.
The video features Madonna at the empty suite of an abandoned hotel, a similar setting to her " Like a Virgin " music video. It was shot in a single frame, with the camera approaching Madonna, as she stands behind a pillar. She rotates around it and sings the song, as air blows through the room. It was treated with sepia color. She noted the aimless movement of the camera towards her as "bringing focus to the main subject, with the viewer's attention fully captured.
It began with the singer dancing with a male back-up dancer as she sang "HeartBreakCity"; then, she chased him up a long spiral staircase and pushed him backwards before merging into "Love Don't Live Here Anymore".
