A song was an individual piece of music that was either performed by a singer, a musician, or a combination of the two. Singing to a specific individual was called a serenade. (TOS: "Plato's Stepchildren", VOY: "The Q and the Grey")

The tale of Odysseus told of Sirens, women who "sang a song so beautiful that any man who heard it would be lured to his death." In order for his sailing vessel to pass the sirens, untempted, "he told his crew to cover their ears so they couldn't hear the sirens' song. But he also had them tie him to the mast of the ship so he could listen himself without being led astray as they sailed past." (VOY: "Favorite Son")

Specific works

A jukebox

In the first draft script of ENT: "Rogue Planet", "The Song of the Wandering Aengus" was referred to interchangeably as both a song and a poem (though, in the final draft of the teleplay and the final version of the episode, it's consistently termed a poem).
