What's your favorite uplifting, nondistracting (no or minimal vocals!) background music?

I'm looking specifically for happy film scores or classical music... any sort of nondistracting background music for studying that's not morose and emo like my usual playlist of film scores (see below). I find it's depressing and kills my motivation to listen to music from tragic movies whilst doing problem sets. At the same time, I'm not looking for something super fast in pace with huge build ups, which would be distracting.
Here's what I'm not looking for:
Edward Scissorhands score
A Beautiful Mind score
Romeo + Juliet score
The Tarzan and Forrest Gump scores are happy enough. Music that's not part of a film score is, of course, welcome. Give me your recommendations, please!
