Bemused

So apparently, there have been five songs in modern English rock which were specifically written about muses. Here's the list, channeled from Gabriel Archangel, patron of the arts:

"Windy", by The Association (Windy, a gryphon)
"Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", by The Beatles (Moxie, a unicorn; the title is in fact a reference to LSD, with which the band members were experimenting)
"Hang On Sloopy", by the McCoys (Sloopy, a phoenix)
"Quinn The Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)", by Bob Dylan and performed by Manfred Mann (Eskimo Quinn, a human strongman/clown, also called Engki)
"In the Dark", by 3 Doors Down (Inari, fox woman / kitsune)

Notably, Windy loves to dance, Moxie is all about fantasy, Sloopy heals the downtrodden, Quinn loves to put on a show, and Inari wanted to show everyone her own chops at inspiration (rather than always being about money) and took on 3 Doors Down as a personal project for Gabriel just before the band formed.
