Release and Reception
"Because I Love You" was released as the fourth track on Badfinger's 1981 album, Say No More, which was the second made after the suicide of former guitarist Pete Ham. That same year, it saw single release in America (the final of three singles from Say No More, with one of its predecessors, "Hold On", hitting #56 on the Billboard Hot 100.) backed with the Tom Evans penned track, "Too Hung Up on You" (also from Say No More.) The single did not chart.
AllMusic critic William Ruhlmann said that "on 'Because I Love You,' they sound like the Raspberries trying to sound like the Beatles." Despite this comment, he still cited the song as a highlight from the Say No More album.
