How does music affect sleep?

I'm simply curious... Are there any studies which show interesting effects of sleeping with music versus sleeping without music?

Natural sounds as opposed to music can aid sleep.

For me, recordings of rain or waves breaking can help me sleep - mainly as it can drown out noise from the neighbours [>:(]

Thanks for the responses :)
I tested this last night with a playlist of Regina Spektor, and found it considerably difficult to sleep. However, when I finally woke up the next morning, I found my headphones off and set next to my bed.

Oddly enough, today I wrote a song (Melody, Chords, Lyrics, and all in about 40 minutes) which I find quite good. I just realized there could possibly be a connection between sleeping with the music and a sudden burst of creativity.

It was an interesting experiment to say the least (if one can call it that)...  [;D]
