Well, they did a musical episode of Buffy, so it's not really that weird. Quite a few books I've read will often mention the music that's playing...a good example is Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice - Lestat become a rock star, so music is quite a feature of it. I mean, if it inspires you to write, it can't be a bad thing.

No, I guess that's true - however I've actually included lyrics... LOL! But sometimes they hold meaning to what I'm writing in itself, eg. the Morrissey one I used... one character wouldn't talk about his feelings, so his friends basically said: "If you ignore us it'll only make us want to help you more!" well, that's sort of my interpretation anyway...
Just to add to my earlier comments...the book I'm reading now has a lot of musical references in it too. It started out just by mentioning what music was being played in the background, but now there's a character who is a performer, and it incorporated the lyrics of a David Bowie song...so, yeah...not so unusual....expecially in Vampire fiction, it would seem!

Woot well that's ok then ;D
I try to have the lyrics I use relate to a particular situation, mostly... I think there's something ... more poetic about it? I guess? I dunno... Unless it's just a quirky thing, like Kinky Boots or Casino Royale
