So.. how do I get started?
You have two choices:
1. Play by the rules
2. or follow your gut
Start with what you have- the text.
Create a long list of adjectives that describes what YOU felt during each scene.
Use the list as a diving board to jump in to a genre, to an artist, and then to a song.
Playing by the rules:

Uptight
agitated
Worried
Isolated
Dejected
Anxious
2. Genre:
Alternative rock
3. Band:
