Except that only works when you live in the states... Us europeans can't use pandora because of some US laws. There are of course solutions to that problem, but that's not 100% legal.

Sorry, I forgot about you fellows on the other side of the pond.  Guess that's one more reason to bash us 'colonists'!! ;D ;)
...but I could be wrong.

Unfortunately there isn't much that can be done about licensing songs (and anything else for that matter) outside of the usa...id recommend getting lots of music and using the genius feature in itunes!

I always throw on some Steve Vai or Satch when I'm painting.  The former especially, Vai's music always had an amazing effect on me.

music has no effect on my painting other than distracting me further from noticing the time.  I usually listen to fad gadget, talking heads, lou reed, specimen, roxy music and more of that ilk.
I don't process the stuff in my head I just regurgitate it!

I don't listen to music while painting, I usually throw on a T.V. show or movie while I paint. Usually something like Cops, CSI, Destroyed in Seconds or the Simpsons. I'll toss in a movie sometimes, I picked up Repo! The Genetic Opera the other day so now I can listen and watch at the same time.

I also tried a Black Library book on tape, The Lightning Tower/Dark King. It was quite good. Very motivating.

if im at the LGC i dont listen to music when painting (i usually chat with whoever else is sitting around the table), but whenever im painting at home SpoTify is my friend :P

i have thrown together a playlist that could drone on for days without hitting the same song twice wich i put on shuffle. what usually comes up includes Eluvitie, Finntroll (that makes us four!!!), Rammstein, Guns N´Roses, Avenged Sevenfold, Rage against the Machine, SoAD, SlipKnot, Alice in Chains, Lush, Beck, Interpol, That Handsome Devil, Elvis Costello, Timbuktu, and everything in between.
If all else fails, hit it with a hammer.

I'm more of a movie painter but I don't watch it just listen but only the movies with the great sound tracks. 

such as transformers I can paint for hours on that and the LOTR movies.

  If you have the extended versions you have a good 9 hours of painting music. 

plus their are others too many to list so I guess I do listen music just from a movie not the radio.

Typically I just set my Ipod to random, which means a lot of blues, SRV, Hendrix, etc.  but also means I get my MSI and good old 90's alternative like Cracker...

My true throw back for painting, when I first started, I would put on Stabbing Westward's Whither Blister Burn and Peel on repeat.  When that comes up on my IPod I automatically get a throw back to living with my parents and spending my evenings painting.

I listen to I'm On a Boat repeating for hours on end while I paint. It gets me pumped.

Ok, maybe not for hours on end... I mostly don't listen to anything but the TV in the background.

EDIT: Whoa! It automatically embedded the video. :S I don't wanna get in trouble so I removed the link.

Love music while I paint!

Soundtracks work well for me such as: Halo 3, Lord of the Rings, Thin Red Line, Starship Troopers or the music from Braid. But also classical works from the likes of Sibelius or one of Bond's CDs and just sometimes Saxon/Manowar/Iced Earth and the like, if I have a game coming up, though I generally prefer less overpowering stuff when I'm trying to concentrate.
When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

I usually just listen to anything, I prefer to listen to Queen, Nightwish, or some popish, soft rock. Alot of times though I just turn on the TV for background noise, becuase if there is just silence I would probably suffer from Cabin Fever and go insane @_@ ::)

Beatles almost 100%, but I rarely do music while I paint. Usually I'll drop some sort of documentary in the DVD player.

Learn N' Paint FTW
