i draw to a rhythm, whether it's from music in my head or out of it. the music in my head gets old and repetitive sometimes, so i like external music.

It depends...sometimes yes, sometimes no...I'm not in the same place all the time when I draw and paint. For me it has to do with the current activity and left brain/right brain processes.

Another factor is when it is 2am, and I have another couple hours ahead (or any other time I'm low on energy), I'll put in some ACDC....Ozric Tentacles...whatever I need to get jacked back up so I can get through.

I like to hear musics in other languages than my own... but in the end, I almost don't notice the sound, I don't even notice that dozens of musics already played, since I get really focused on the drawing, but the music helps even if I don't "hear" it.

I'm a synesthete, so I actually find that I either gravitate to music whose colors fit the painting I'm working on, or the painting will take on the colors of the music I listen to. It helps me get into the right mindset, especially during the idea generating process. I'd never be able to listen to car-driving music (for me, hard rock) while trying to paint. Just me, though.

I learned to paint drinking coffee and listening to rock music.
It would be weird doing it without.

In freshman year of college I got stuck with roommates who liked to play Kenny G and Yanni constantly... Headphones and heavy metal were the only things preventing me from murdering them and their stereo.
I don't have any constants, I change mixes depending on what mood I'm in. For a while it was mostly Massiv in Mensch. Right now my miracle mix seems to be Astral Projection, Eat Static, and Birdy Nam Nam. Next month it'll be something else.
Though the entire Electric Ladyland album at 5:00am almost always works wonders...
(@Jeff: if you like Ozric Tentacles, you might like Eat Static... Same guy, if I'm not mistaken...)
