Help us plan our summer trip to Spain! What are the best places to go, and how long should we spend in each?

This summer my husband and I are going to Paris for a week at the end of June for a conference, and then we have another week after that to spend however we want. I've never been to Spain, and right now, our tentative plan is to spend a few days in Barcelona (getting there from Paris via a sleeper train), a few days in Granada, and a few days in Madrid. But we're also playing around with the idea of skipping Madrid in favor of Seville. Basically, we're looking for advice about which are the can't-miss cities in Spain.
Generally, we like museums, but after a week in Paris we might be a little museum-ed out. (I'm sure we'll be open to going to some, but we won't want to spend all of our time in them.) As far as nightlife, we'd love to go out for a drink and some music or a show in the evenings, but we're not planning to be at the clubs until they close.
All told, we have about eight days before we need to be back in Paris to catch our flight back home.
Thanks for your help and travel expertise!
