Jeremy's right---the music comes first; the theory(scales/keys/etc.) is just a way to describe what happens, not the determinant to what must or should happen.

It's common to think otherwise as we learn about the tools of music but theory is neither universal nor set in stone; it's history is one of regularly being revamped to fit what composers create.

Don't go too far the other way, though; you should learn "the rules" & nomenclature to better communicate---just don't let it limit your creativity or convince you that what doesn't "fit" is necessarily wrong.
