I see color raining down
Feral feeling, swaying sound
Wake me up, I’m fever dreaming
“Alligator” is the group’s first new material in four years–it’s been out just over a month and it’s already Top 5 on the Adult Alternative chart, and top 10 on the Alternative chart.
Giving credit where credit is due: the original “alligator” song by Bill Haley & the Comets (1956), plus nods to Elton John’s “Crocodile Rock” (1972) and “Alligator Woman,” a funky R&B sound by Cameo (early 80s).
