I like to have music playng all the time.  When I'm doing something that requires concentration (taxes) I put Pachelbel's Canon in D on a loop because it's so soft and soothing.  It just keeps on playing until I'm finished & shut it off.

I think Pachelbel's Canon in D major is one of the most melodic, relaxing pieces I've ever played or heard being played.

I have always been in love with the instrumental theme from the movie "Somewhere In Time" by John Barry and Roger Williams:

One of my all time favorite jazz instrumentals is "Europa" by Gato Barbieri, composed by Carlos Santana:
