There is not enough as I plod through the day with boring tasks.

I like kexp.org and pandora, but with each I find that I get to a point where either:

A) Wow, this song is really good. I'm going to stop working and listen to this song.

B) this song is really bad. I'm going to tun it off/down/whatever (pandora: find window so I can teach pandora what sucks)

So I tend to not fire stuff up because I think it will impede my progress by 10% throughout the day.

I guess something that would be good would be a pandora channel that is without the lyrics.

Classical and jazz are things I can enjoy in small doses. But not a whole day.

I feel a bit twisted. I feel like I am seeking musak.

maybe you should try music with lyrics in another language so you don't stop to listen to the lyrics.

First World problems, anyone?

Just be thankful I don't come up there and sing for you.

This is why I almost exclusively listen to heavy metal with unintelligible singing- has the energy to get me going, but no distracting human-parts to the song. Then again, I am a big weirdo, and like very very very high energy music. Perhaps electronic type stuff would be an option as well, I wouldn't know as I absolutely can't stand electronica in any form. I even find the vocals from bluegrass to be distracting, much less anything with any sort of "hook".
Though I really like bluegrass.

And, just for giggles, here is an example of bluegrass metal:

I use music.cbc.ca to stream jazz or classical. I also like espace.mu (in French). Both services are provided by the Canadian Broadcast Corporation (aka Radio-Canada).
 
The moth suit and wings road is much more exciting than taxes. Or this tiny ad:
