Title: Music

So when I listen to music, it usually gets stuck in my head. And so when I try to sleep or try astral projection such as phasing, music is in the background of my head. Is this ok or is it detrimental to my chances of having an obe?

OBE requires your Mind Awake while your Body is Asleep (MABA). As long as you don't move any part of your body in the rhythm of the music you should be okay.

Mind Awake, Body Asleep may not be a condition that is necessarily a preceding condition, but it will need to likely follow pretty quickly after the transition; but if you manage the transition successfully, then you will not even likely notice that your physical body has entered a MABA-state. With that said baro-san is right in that the key is to not let your focus on the music interfere with getting sufficiently relaxed and close to the MABA state.

So if your focus on the music serves to get you there without interfering with that, then go for it...it may be your personal method or exit technique. Certainly something to explore.

Try different techniques, especially any that may prod your interest.

It's OK.  :-)

You could try using it - I've had success with that before. What usually happens is the music starts playing on its own in my head and I mentally follow it, going deeper and deeper into relaxation.

Consider for a moment that Marathon Runners are known to have "out of body" experiences while running... and I think we can quite agree that a Marathon Runner is quite actively moving their body at the time.  ;)
SO, we can extrapolate from this that the MABA state isn't required in order to project.  We can also extrapolate that all that is required is an intensely focused state, which is what these runners are in.
I can attest to it personally since I'm a long distance runner too.  When I'm doing a long run, sometimes I feel like I'm so focused on putting one foot in front of the other to simply keep moving that I could easily project with just a simple shift of Intent.  :)
