    What do you listen to while creating art?

    what I love about drawing is that once I map out the basic structure and design of the drawing in my mind I can listen to all kinds of stuff, while drawing, and fully appreciate what I'm listening to. I like NPR, my audiobook collection (the contents of which I've listened to so many times I've virtually memorized each one and can lip-sync the words...), and I find Rammstein particularly inspiring when I want to do something badass.
    do other people share this habit? if so what do you listen to while creating art?

    ~3000 songs on my playlist at the moment.

    Recently, I've been playing Comedy Central Presents and Celebrity Jeopardy videos in the background. It's nice a break from music and it keeps my brain active.

    I like the courses from the Teaching Company. When I'm working full out I can burn through even the longest ones in a few days. They're expensive, but most big library systems have them.

    I've got one mix CD with music from Dance Dance Revolution (random techno beats and) and some Blue Man Group and a few random tracks.

    I also occasionally listen to my FFVII OST.

    Then, I have a mix CD of lots of Incubus and Audioslave and then some.

    Finally, there's 100.3 FM ( http://www.y100.com/ Warningissass Flash navigation menu)

    Depends on the task at hand. For some things i need to concentrate and music distracts too much.
