This is my first piece of writing before conservatorium training in 1986. At that time, people wrote in the 'miscellaneous' column of the paper to find partners. I made the verses using actual 'wanted' ads. I took little riffs from my Casio keyboard to show the mass produced, almost cliched feel of these ads. Love is an eternal subject and there are so many ways to ease the heart through music. Wanted explores loneliness as a popular experience.
