April 22nd, 1942

Calendario Milonguero

Date in which Enrique Rodriguez and Armando Moreno recorded CARRO VIEJO. His lyricist, Máximo Orsi, wrote several poems in lunfardo (slang). One example is the title of the chosen tango that actually refers to the aging of the human body. In the past young people were given the nickname carrito (small truck), and over the years they would become a carro (carriage). At the end they would become a carro viejo (old wagon).
