I love pretty much anything when it comes to music, and shamelessly too! There's something about music that really helps spur creativity--it inspires through the emotions invoked in a powerful song or a sweet melody, while something with a fast, exciting beat keeps me going when I feel tired and tempted to quit. I've spent hours in second-hand shops scouring the CD bins to add to my collection, and Amazon's mp3 store has become my new best friend. As a result, I'm bopping my head along to this weird mix of songs and instrumentals by Yoko Kanno, Within Temptation, Creed, Buck Tick, Lifehouse, Staind, Queen, Seal, MercyMe, John Williams, Sarah McLachlan, Blue October, Verve...and the list goes on! Crazy, yeah?
So what tunes do you like to groove too? How about favorite movie scores? Don't laugh, but the score for Conan the Barbarian is GREAT for listening too while working on fantasy art. ;)
