Girl O' My Dreams is the twelfth track (tenth song) on T.C. Ellis's first and only album True Confessions, and is written by Prince (although he does not feature as a musician).

While specific recording dates for the initial version of the song are not known, the song was originally recorded in 1982 at Prince's Kiowa Trail Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The track was re-recorded on 18 June 1986 at the Washington Avenue Warehouse in Eden Prairie, Minnesota (the day after Data Bank, Can't Stop This Feeling I Got and We Can Funk).

The track was given to T.C. Ellis, who had appeared in the Graffiti Bridge movie, when he and Levi Seacer, Jr. were working on his album True Confessions in 1990-1, and the track was re-recorded without Prince's input for use on the album.
