“Frog” by Cavetown

This love song reads as if it was inspired by your quintessential princess-and-the-frog fairytale. Here, we find Cavetown likening himself to the frog and the addressee, his romantic interest, the princess. But be that as it may, that is not why he initially named this track so.

Instead, as the singer/songwriter explained, this piece was actually inspired by the fact that he used “a frog meme” to propose love to his real-life girlfriend. But either way it is still clear that to some extent the lyrical motif was inspired by “the Frog Prince”, as the legend is commonly known.

That said, despite the unorthodox wording of this piece, sentiment-wise it is more or less a standard love song. It is one in which the vocalist is most pointedly expressing the pleasure he derives from his relationship with the addressee.

“I’m your frog
Kiss me better all night
Yeah, I’m your frog
Kiss me better all night long”


Cavetown is a musician from England who made a name for himself on social media through a number of self releases before eventually signing with Triple Crown Records and then subsequently Sire Records. 

His most recent studio LP, “Sleepyhead” (2020), has proven his most successful to date. It is actually Cavetown’s only project thus far to appear on the UK Albums Chart. 

In 2015, he released his first album (“Cavetown”). This album birthed a single titled “Devil Town”. This single was followed by another single (“This Is Home“), which like its predecessor also went Gold in the United States.


“Frog”, which itself was released on 19 October 2022, is a track to be found on Cavetown’s fifth studio LP, which is a project titled “Worm Food”.

Skinner produced and wrote “Frog”, in addition to serving as its music video’s director.


Let’s get the discussion going! Do share your thoughts and opinions on the song “Frog”.

“Living in an area with a very high population of frogs used to be a nuisance for me, thanks to ‘Frog’ I’ve gained a newfound appreciation for them even though the song has nothing to do with frogs per se LOL. It has helped me view these amphibians in a more positive light, and I’m now able to coexist with them much more comfortably.”

“It’s hard to deny that the phrase ‘I’m your frog’ in the song seems quite nonsensical and contrasts sharply with the emotional depth of the overall message. However, I believe this contrast is part of what makes this song unique and memorable.”

– Brandon

“Back in April 2022, I was fortunate enough to attend Cavetown’s concert in San Diego during his US tour. He performed this song at the said event, but unfortunately, it was difficult for me to fully appreciate the performance due to the distracting noise from the crowd. However, despite the initial difficulty, I later found myself becoming emotionally attached to “Frog” and appreciating it on a different level altogether.”

    You started with your opinion and they can’t say theirs? And yes, I will say that Frog is an amazing song and Robin works hard on his songs. There’s my opinion for you.

    I always thought if this song as the singer confessing to their lover that they are actually a frog disguised as human, which is both adorable and totally weird. Also “two amphibian lovers” is an amazing line.
