I get a lot of inspiration from songs, but I as my primary creativity is writing, I can't really listen to music while doing it. It's hard to write words while listening to others. Instrumental stuff is good though. The inspiration usually strikes when I'm just listening to music, and I'll have some strong flash of an idea or image from some of the lyrics. Heck, half the time I mishear the actual words, but my "wrong" version is actually a really cool idea, so I go with that instead.
