  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Word Origins 49. The word origin today is

  • dreamboat. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here if someone first to another

  • person as a dreamboat it means he or she is extremely attractive and good-looking. All right.

  • This term does tend to be used more with young men than with women. Yeah. I almost

  • always hear it used with men. I can't I really almost can hardly think of any

  • examples of it being used with women. Anyway. Let's continue here. The origin is

  • believed to come from a 1936 hit song named when my dreamboat comes home. Okay.

  • It was originally written and performed by Guy Lombardo.

  • So a guy originally wrote it so and there... and when we see here you know , some of

  • the famous artists that did sing it. So you did have some men singing. So they

  • must have been singing it about a woman at the time. So at least in the song, it

  • did refer to a woman, but in regular everyday speech I almost hear always

  • hear it referred to as a man. So it was originally written and perormed by Guy

  • Lombardo. However the song has been remade many times and sung by numerous

  • famous artists such as Patsy Cline, Brenda Lee, Fats Domino, Ray Charles , Bing

  • Crosby, and even Bugs Bunny sang it in a cartoon. Now these were all a while ago, I

  • mean I don't know anybody recently that did it, but that doesn't mean that the

  • term doesn't exist anymore. The term is still around , you still might hear

  • somebody referred to as a handsome guy, as a dreamboat. Okay. Let's continue here.

  • The song makes reference to the return of one's love in a romantic way. You know

  • and they're almost referring to them as... well they are referring to them as the

  • dreamboat. The dreamboat is their love that's coming back. But anyway here's a

  • couple of examples of how we we do actually use it. So example number one.

  • You know, maybe another girl or some somebody

  • might be saying to this girl "wow, you are so lucky. Your new boyfriend is a

  • dreamboat. " Or a real dreamboat. Or number two here. You might have many handsome

  • male actors in the past have been referred to as dreamboats. All right. So

  • these are two examples. These are two ways that you might hear it be used.

  • Anyway I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
