After its release, the song was critically appreciated, but was only moderately successful commercially. Its highest position was in the United Kingdom, where it reached two. Records, that Madonna record a cover version of the song to include in the album. 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 differs in the usage of more classical instruments in the latter.
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. After meeting, they decided to contact songwriter Miles Gregory to use one of his songs for Whitfield's record group Rose Royce. 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. Jim Mortimer from Deseret News felt that "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" was a perfect example of how gospel and soul music can be clubbed together and complimented producer Buckmaster. It was more successful on the Hot Black Singles chart, where it reached five, and stayed there for four weeks. The song began a slow climb, and after nine weeks reached a peak of 41 on the chart. It was present for a total of 12 weeks on the chart.
Across Europe, the song failed to chart except in Netherlands, where it reached eleven. The song was successful in Australia and New Zealand, where it reached positions four and two on the charts, respectively. It was released as the first of the EMI Digital series in a limited edition 12" single. Coincidentally, Australian band I'm Talking also released a version in late Their arrangement had the vocals mixed over a House -influenced backing track.
