Soothing the savage breast

Does the music you play in the studio while you're painting affect what you paint?

Does a certain musical mood cause you to choose certain colors or make certain marks that you would not have otherwise?

I made yesterday's painting while listening to Led Zeppelin. I remember the creative juices really kicking in when Sandy Denny joined them on "The Battle of Evermore."

I made the best painting of my life while listening to "Psychedelic Shack" by the Temptations. Would it have come out as well if I had been listening to "The Magic Flute," or "The Partridge Family Shopping Bag"?
