HAL sings "Daisy" while his memory is being taken out in 2001.

The Mos Eisley Cantina Band in Star Wars. The musical numbers at Jabba's Palace in Return of the Jedi. The celebrations at the end of ROTJ and TPM; IMO it's unclear whether everybody can hear the music in-universe at the medal ceremony in ANH, though. No doubt others from the Star Wars saga.

Awsome. No lyrics but the music was still part of the story.

I nominate that tune Maria Ospenkia(sp) played on the violin in "Frankenstein", the tune she used to soothe the monster and to make him return to the castle.
Okay, forgive me, but you've got a bunch of old horror movies mixed up here.

The bit with the violin was not from the original "Frankenstein," but from the Mel Brooks parody "Young Frankenstein"--with Cloris Leachman as "Frau Blucher."

This bit was probably inspired by a similar bit of business in "Son of Frankenstein," where Ygor (played by Bela Lugosi) uses a violin to control the Monster.

Maria Ouspenkaya was not in the original "Frankenstein." She played Maleva the gypsy in "The Wolf Man" and reprised the role in "Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man."

It's possible Maleva does the violin trick in "Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman." I can't remember.
Okay, lets just go with Frau Blucher in Young Frankenstein and Ygor in Son of Frankenstein, then.

But how was the music in these scenes "part of the story"?

There's one scene in Clockwork Orange where Malcolm McDowell is actually whistling the theme of the movie itself.

Well, in the case of ANH, the band stopped playing when Ben sliced off the arm of the alien taunting Luke, then started up again. On the other hand, it didn't miss a beat when Han shot Greedo. No one cared that someone got shot with a blaster; that seemed normal. But pull out a lightsaber, and everyone stopped whatever they were doing. That's telling part of the story right there, since their cover was blown.

Is this sort of thing what the OP is looking for? I don't know.

Little Shop of Horrors, in case that wasn't mentioned. But, that was originally not a musical, so was the music really part of the story? I don't know. To me, it was.
