Grateful Dead

When I was in junior high school, one of my classmates told me she heard a song with my name in it on the radio. She didn't know who it was, but she thought it was a cool song. I had never even met anyone with my name, so it was amazing that there was someone out there singing a song about an Althea.

Years later, I heard from one of my co-workers at Starbucks that the song "Althea" was by the Grateful Dead. He even brought in sheet music that he downloaded from his computer, printed it up, and sang it for me, acapella, at work.

If I'm being a little self indulgent, please excuse me. I like the song, and not because of the name. Well, maybe a little.
