In Greek mythology, Anteros (Greek: Ἀντέρως, Antérōs) was the god of requited love, literally “love returned” or “counter-love” and also the punisher of those who scorn love and the advances of others, or the avenger of unrequited love.
In theory, I’ve made an album. This is the song that’s been holding things up. How can it be complete if the titular song isn’t done? Well, now it’s done. In my mind at least.
I’ve been trying to record this song since at least 2004. I wrote it a few years before that, I think. Wasn’t happy with the previous 5 versions. Mostly due to my singing or the feel was wrong. I feel the same way about my voice as I do about pictures of me. Every once in a while there’s a photo where I think, “Hm. That’s not too bad. Some potential there.”

Now I can get on with my musical life. Time to explore some organic electronica. (Is that an oxymoron?)
