To be honest I never thought of background music as engage in this behavior. The last time this happened I was engaged in the behavior of having my teeth cleaned.

This is normal behavior for me. I turn on my system (tube preamp and amps), select an album from Roon and then let it play recommended artists from Quboz and Tidal for hours while I work. The music plays throughout my house. I always have music playing in my house and my office (when officially at work).
I purposefully listen to selected content from my 'fit my arse only' spots which are ALL centered for imaging.
1. Music system, stereo, always specifically chosen content, I don't stream here. LP's; SACD/CD; R2R tapes, rarely FM Jazz Station.
2. Video system: stereo or 5.1, pre-recorded i.e. The Voice,... Movies/Music DVD's, or selected streamed content, i.e. hop about YouTube, selecting from specific search, sometimes randomly found. btw, The Voice is all over the world, and many sing in English.
3. Office system: most often Pandora semi-random content specifically to discover 'similar' new artists, also LPs, R2R tapes,
4. Garage/Shop system, each a centered work area, FM Jazz; LP, Cassette, un-played 8 Track player for the joke of it I suppose.
The tuner is always on if listening to the stereo.
It’s great for in-between time(flipping thru LP collection or whatever) if it’s not the center of attention for listening.
I instinctively hit the remote button and select the tuner when an LP side is done-no dead air.
Tuner is pretty much dedicated to the Classical station, so when listening to R&R and Jazz LPs’s, it’s like a palate cleanse/reset for the mind.
Led Zeppelin then downshift to Bach/Mozart momentarily. A couple of musician friends love this move.
