Using Music as Your Muse...

Have you ever used a song, either the music, or lyrics, or both, as your muse to write your next story?  For instance, just tonight while trying to sleep I was awakened to hear Art Garfunkel singing "Break Away" and thought how the lyrics of that song kind of told a story.  But not enough of a story.  The lyrics of this song would be a great starting point for us to write short stories, or maybe even a whole novel about.

Off the same album is "My Little Town". Not that song begs us to write the story.  Why did the boy feel this way about his hometown?  
Well, that's what I woke up with tonight.  It seems I am having too much trouble with the typing to actually write any stories tonight as my sleep medications are saying it's time to get back to sleep.  But tomorrow when I am awake, there just might be a story waiting to be written from one or both of these songs.  What will you do with them?
