"April 20" is the title of a song by the Spanish band Celtas Cortos .
Written as a letter addressed by the author to an old friend, nostalgically recalling the good times lived in the past with their common group of youthful friends. [ 1 ]
The repercussion was such that the Municipal Group of the United Left in the Valladolid City Council , presented a proposal - which finally did not prosper - so that the name of José Antonio Primo de Rivera Street , would be renamed April 20 . [ 5 ]
The official video for the song was not recorded until many years after being released on 20 April 2019. [ 6 ]
When the 25th anniversary of the date was fulfilled, that is, on April 20, 2015, a nostalgic wave occurred in Spain both in social networks and in the media, evoking the theme, which became a trending topic . [ 7 ] They even made parodies of the lyrics and eventual responses to the letter of the song. [ 8 ]
Coinciding with the pandemic of COVID-19 , Valladolid band released a new version along with other renowned artists under the name Celtic Short & Friends in which adapted the lyrics to celebrate its 30th anniversary and whose benefits would be earmarked for charitable purposes. [ 10 ]
