Are these sentences ok and natural? I just couldn't sleep with the music. I just couldn't sleep with the sound of music. I just couldn't sleep because of the music. I just couldn't sleep with the noise. I just couldn't sleep because of the noise.

I just couldn't sleep with THAT noise/music/sound. (Use "that") ...because of the noise/sound/music But there's another way: What with the noise, I just couldn't sleep. What with the music, I just couldn't sleep.

Yes, all okay. Just add "the", as "I just couldn't sleep with the sound of the music".
