Evanescence has a LOT of music that crosses into Erik/Christine's realm. Frequently one her songs has inspired my PTO plotlines/scenes. I have even had the CD's blaring on endless loop to my husband's disapproval as I write.

Erik and Christine viewing the world after their love has altered their respective realities.
I think of this as once Christine accepts her feelings for Erik.

Christine haunted after the Phantom passes on.
Erik pining when Christine rejects him.

This is just gorgeous about two star-crossed lovers dreaming for the impossible.
Obsess much, dear Erik? Why yes... yes--you belong to me!

This works for both of them in my mind ... back and forth. This a song I particularly looped during the conception for "Nightingale's Strain". My husband grabbed the CD and hid it ... too bad I had ripped the CD onto my hard drive.

Erik, absolutely and completely. This was another looped piece during writing where I pictured him with his violin on the incomplete empty stage of Carnegie Hall prior to the opening nights. It also spawned the backstage revelation of Erik's presence to Christine, a Hudson river scene, and the climactic end conflict.
There are more... but I think my secret methods for churning out devilishly wild twisted tales is showing.
I have a few other artists who had influenced as well, maybe I will collect those and post links.
