Blue Orchid" is a rock song by the The White Stripes from their album, Get Behind Me Satan, released as a single in 2005. The song, though basic and riff-driven like much of The White Stripes material, was noticeably different from any of their previous recordings, with a bizarre disco flavor in Jack White's mannered falsetto vocals and Meg White's insistent drum beats underscoring the huge, metallic, processed guitar riffs.
