The word crocodile comes from the Greek crocodilos
, which means lizard. And these animals have survived where most species have failed --since the time of the dinosaurs. Scientists believe that crocodiles have evolved very little, if at all since those prehistoric times, and many attribute this to the fact that their design seems to be working quite well. The crocodile can be found in tropical freshwater and brackish waters and sprinkled throughout the world of popular music. Most would agree that Elton John's famous "Crocodile Rock" is the most famous crocodile song ever recorded, and I would not disagree. But there are other worthy crocodile songs out there. This playlist features my top 10.
