"Dreams 4ever", also known as La Canción de Alicia, was an unknown song shared on Facebook in 2019 and 2021.


The oldest known record of the song dates back to March 29, 2019, when a Facebook user named Jitomate Triste shared the only known fragment in a Facebook group asking if anyone knew its name. Part of the song was in a video edit with scenes from Disney's animated film, Alice in Wonderland. The shared snippet was 1 minute and 4 seconds long. Although Jitomate Tristes's posts attracted the attention of other users, nobody was able to identify the song and they were eventually put aside. However, an unidentified person screen-recorded the original video 7 hours after its publication and shared it with people outside the group.

On July 3, 2021, the screen recording was posted by a Facebook user called Daniel Gutiérrez in the group Lost Media Perdidos Posting. The video was re-uploaded to YouTube by another user a couple of days later. Said re-upload would attract the attention of some people in September of that same year, starting a search.


Gin & Tonic

In mid-October 2021, a YouTube user named 'Yo yoyo' suggested that the band that could made the song was called Gin & Tonic. The band in question existed, was of Chilean origin and was formed in 2001, breaking up at some point in 2005. The group only had one album titled Free as the Sun, with the peculiarity of being sung in English.[1]

Some concluded that the lead vocalist of Gin & Tonic had a voice similar of the singer from "Alicia's Song", in addition to the fact that the theme has a similar style of the band. However, when searching the Free as the Sun album and the band's demos, the song did not appear. Finally, at the end of October, some users contacted Ricardo Méndez, the Gin & Tonic's vocalist, who confirmed that they never made the song. Nevertheless, he released a cover by the name Under the Stars in his YouTube channel.[2]


For years, the only known snippet of the song was the one present in Daniel Gutiérrez's post from 2021.

On May 16, 2024, the full song was found by JMike_324 and Gelyne in a Facebook post from 2018, by the band Bad Influence.[3] The studio version of the song would be uploaded the next day.
