Recently, painting and modelling has mostly been done while listening to amusing world history videos on youtube. I do have a theoretical playlist for games (the games are as yet theoretical, the playlist is real). Mostly post-rock and the like. Radiohead, Mogwai, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, some deathrock, some soundtrack (Dark Knight and Torchwood mostly), a bit of Holst.
Questions are a burden to others, answers a burden to oneself.

While gaming, we have this old thread.

I will say, however, on my note of "theme music" for characters, my earlier selections have changed slightly - "Amaranth (Instrumental) " has tended towards becoming Silva's theme rather than Skoll's - it fits her personal blend of heroism and rapidly changing mood better than his personality.

While painting or modelling - I'll listen to pretty much anything in my collection. Might be Enya, Led Zeppelin, Vivaldi, Ultravox, Pink Floyd (lots of Pink Floyd), Tom Petty, Beatles, Rammstein, Queen, etc, etc.
There are certain pieces I turn towards depending on mood or creative block, but I've never quite understood the idea of having specific "painting soundtracks".

Often though, I'll put on TV or a film in the background instead. I've watched a lot of films I've been meaning to this way - not sure how I can keep focus on both at once, but it works.
General advice though, avoid comedy unless you want to get paint everywhere when you start laughing.

Captain L. Rollin: "Nonsense. Never heard of it."
Birgen: "Pick a window. I'll demonstrate".

Usually, when painting, I listen to BBC Radio 4 - or The World Service (depending on if I am painting after 1am GMT). Alternatively I listen to punk, ska, mod, metal, or medieval music. Or indeed anything! In the past I have listened to music as varied as the Horst Wessel Lied through the Soviet National Anthem, to S&M by way of Vincere e Vinceremo and Jarama Valley.

While writing I tend to listen to quite aggressive music, although it does vary depending on my mood. I currently have a thing for Gregorian Chants whilst writing 40K based stuff. It suits the mood of the Imperium well, I feel.

Also, ,my Escher gang, the Hellbitches, have a paintscheme inspired by Panic at the Disco's video to I Write Sins, Not Tragedies...!

Large-scale orchestral music gets my personal vote...
