Goddess of Love Songs and Erotic Poetry.

One of the Muses, Erato is responsible for romantic ballads, sexy dance vibes and smoochy lurve music. Tip: Put a small statue of her on your stereo during a candlelit dinner and see what happens.

And talking of entertaining, Erato has a little party trick — she’s very good at impersonations after a few glasses of wine.
