A Call for Help

For my final piece in Creative Writing, I have decided to experiment with something Stephen King mentioned in his "memoir" On Writing. He encouraged writers to use music as a source of setting mood for a piece; if you want anger, blast Metallica. However, what would happen if you created your stories from the music itself?
My idea is to create a playlist on which I can create short stories based on the imagery and story I hear within the music, its movements and its lyrics. Here is where I need your help. Leave me suggestions of songs to put in my playlist.
Here are two songs I've already decided on. Hope you take the time to listen to them.
