Any suggestions for mellow instrumental background music for family videos and/or biographies?

I'm looking for good background music for videos that I'm editing together of family stuff, and later for personal biographies that I might do for people. I have only a tiny repertoire, and I can't use the same music for every family video. I'm thinking instrumental with a mellow vibe. Any suggestions?

As an idea of what I consider good, here is the Dream Academy doing "Please please please"
from the Ferris Bueller soundtrack, I believe. That's kind of the vibe I am going for, though this particular example has a tinge of melancholy in it.
I once did a very nice short video of myself and my daughter playing with bubbles, set to the Beatles doing "Blackbird", so I don't completely rule out vocal tracks.
Also, I know that Green Day's "Time of your life" (or whatever it's called) is a great life-encapsulating type song for an end to a biography.
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
