* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'', did a spoof of The Odyssey where Odysseus(Jason Sudekis) has his men put beeswax in their ears and tie him to the mast to resist the Sirens(Christina Applegate, Kate McKinnon and Cecily Strong) whose singing enchants sailors to crash against the rocks of their island. However they sing songs by female artists from TheNineties like Lisa Loeb, Paula Cole, ShaniaTwain, Sheryl Crowe and TLC which Odysseus can't help but love and sing along to:

* ''Fanfic/TheLifeAndTimesOfAWinningPony'': A [[Myth/SlavicMythology rusalka]] (a ponified Slavic mermaid), whose singing hypnotizes ponies into dancing with it to alleviate its loneliness, appears in a side story. This dance tends to lead to the ponies’ deaths, either through exhaustion or when the rusalka kills them on a whim.

* One episode of ''AmericanDragonJakeLong'' features a mind-controlling siren as a villain, but she doesn't spend any time in or near the ocean. It also subverts expectations because the siren [[spoiler:is a dowdy, geeky girl, not one of the hot cheerleaders that the characters had suspected]].

* {{iamamiwhoami}}'s entire [[ConceptVideo premise]] is built around the concept of the siren song of a mandrake or mandragora. The title of preview video "13.1.14.4.18.1.7.15.18.1.1110" decodes to "mandragora", and the enchanting song aspect is most prominently in "b", "u-1", and "u-2".

* The character Seawrack in GeneWolfe's novel "On Blue's Waters" is referred to as a Siren by Krait. This being a Gene Wolfe novel, and Krait being an in-universe unreliable narrator, it is never clear how well defined this attribution is. However, her singing interferes with normal rational mediation of desire and action and carries sub-audibly over vast distances. As well she is capable of living on and under water indefinitely, so siren seems a fair designation.
