Rose Royce: More Than Just “Car Wash”

31 Jan

Even though I know that Rose Royce did the original version of “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore,”  I always think of Madonna’s version first.  That annoys me.  Don’t get me wrong, I love Madonna, but Rose Royce’s version is where it’s at.  The instrumentation, the voice, the late ’70s wonderfulness…it’s all so great.  Here, listen/download.

One more thing:  though Rose Royce’s version may not have a video shot by Jean-Baptiste Mondino, it does have one that’s full o’ slow-burning funk.
