Yes, I like music in stories. The imagery in some videos can also inspire, as their influences are often classical, mythological, or fantasy stuff that we can all relate to. I'm working on a story now where there is a bongo-drum marimba band playing in the background during a fire escape chase scene...(It's a parody.) But many of us think in cinematic terms, and visualze 'scenes' as such. Then we write down what we see in our heads. If I could program a smell into a story, I would be tempted to do it.

Too true, Louis. All my stories play like videos in my head.
A marimba band sounds like a great accompaniment to a fire escape chase scene. Good luck with your WIP.
