I had never heard We Love You. This song is dope. The wikipedia article lists a quote from Melody Maker saying it was “too much,” but I disagree. John and Paul on the backup vocals. Brian Jones on Mellotron. Nicky Hopkins (just learned who he was, more on that later) on a great piano hook:
Despite its major success, the song is sometimes associated with the end of Squier’s career as a singles artist due to the music video, which was described as one of the worst ever in the 2011 book I Want My MTV: The Uncensored Story of the Music Video Revolution. Directed by Kenny Ortega, it shows Squier dancing around a bed with pastel-colored satin sheets. Squier’s concert ticket sales immediately suffered, and he later fired his managers. He has accused Ortega of deceiving him and altering his original concept, which Ortega denies. While Squier has remained steadfast that the video alone was responsible for the initial decline in his popularity, other commentators have been less certain.
