On March 4 1996, Madonna’s Love Don’t Live Here Anymore music video was shot at the Confitería El Molino in Buenos Aires, Argentina, during her day off from filming Evita.

The music video was directed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino, who worked with Madonna on her videos for Open Your Heart, Justify My Love and Human Nature.

Love Don’t Live Here Anymore was released as the fourth single from the Something to Remember ballads collection.

In her Evita diaries, published by Vanity Fair magazine in 1996, Madonna made reference to the video shoot:

“There are no words to describe the weariness I feel today. I have not slept well in days, and when I do, there is no comfort. My dreams are violent and full of betrayal. Like my life, there’s no escape. I feel the responsibility of this film. I cannot talk about Evita and her life without defending myself … Dear God, what have I gotten myself into? What is happening to me? Today we went to shoot a music video for my next song. But I kept forgetting the lyrics, and felt like crying each and every time I did it. It was so frustrating. It’s my own song!”

  1. Yes! Love Don’t Live Here Anymore is Madonna’s own song even though it’s a cover of a song by Seventies band Rose Royce-the same band that gave us disco classic Car Wash! Madonna Fully Completely gives her all in Love Don’t Live Here Anymore in a sad, brilliant and anguished ballad performance that is one of the absolute best in her entire life and recording career! A Favorite of mine, Love Don’t Live Here Anymore is Madonna at her absolute best! I love this song and I am proud of her!
