There are a few unlikely instruments that reappear in songs occasionally and add an extra punch when least expected. The siren is one I keep stumbling over lately and man, I love it. Improbable as it may seem, the siren provides an important role in select rock songs, as if to say, “Warning: This song may cause melting of the face, bleeding from the ears and spontaneous combustion.”
If you dare, experience first hand what a siren can bring to a song. Press play and take cover.
Next week, the whistle.
