Dolores/Freedy Johnston

This Lolita-inspired tune appeared on Freedy Johnston's 1994 album This Perfect World. It is filled with references not only to Vladimir Nabokov's novel (Dolores was her middle name/She'd read the book and everything) but to Stanley Kubrick's 1962 film version (Have you ever seen that film? and I look like James Mason's ghost). The title refers to Lolita's real name, Dolores Haze.
