Song of the Day: 'Love Don't Live Here Anymore' by Rose Royce

Damian and I have been on a(nother) Madonna kick since watching Guy Guido's documentary about the Breakfast Club. Her version of "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" is sublime, and got me thinking of the original. The oft-covered "Wishing on a Star" and disco smash "Car Wash" are probably Rose Royce's best-known songs. But this one and "I Want to Get Next to You" are still my favorites.

Thanks for this, my absolute favorite of theirs. The song itself, regardless of who sings it, always gets me. Or maybe it's the title, the Bananarama song of the same title is one of my absolute favorites of theirs as well.

This is the best version there ever will be.

Always part of the breakup mix tape.
