Notes


History

Developed from the chorus/title line “Pretty Dream Girl” thru “Angelic Dream Girl” to “Heavenly Body”.

[A] “Heavenly Body”: Sun, Moon, planets, stars, etc.
[B] “Heavenly Body”: A perfect/sexy human body.
[C] “Heavenly Body”: God, angel, ceraph, cherub etc.
[D] “Heavenly Body”: A virtuous, upright person.
[E] “Heavenly Body”: A corpse situated in heaven.

Overview
The song is written to be (mis)interpreted in several ways.

[B&E] – A love story which ends in tragedy.
Verse 1: Meeting a perfect, attractive woman and falling in love.
Verse 2: The woman is not only attractive but behaves in a faithful, loving manner.
Verse 3: Throes, blood and tears etc. a severe car crash which is fatal to his lover.

[C&D] – A NDE (Near-Death-Experience) which ends happily.
Verse 1: A recently deceased person is meeting their guardian angel.
Verse 2: On the way to heaven sins are forgiven.
Verse 3: The person is revived back to life (with a defibrillator) and as the angel recedes, he is aware of his earthly-lover at his side (who assumes the mortal role [D]).
