    From Homer's Odyssey, as Odysseus was making his way home he met many trials.

    One was the Sirens who were women who would call men to come to them, and the men would be destroyed in the attempt. A siren call is therefore one which can not be resisted, but which is destructive.

    Banana, In Greek Mythology a siren is each of a number of women or winged creatures whose singing lured unwary sailors onto rocks.

    In today's version of a siren, it is a woman who is considered to be alluring or fascinating but also dangerous in some way.
