This is a fun read. Your Musical Taste Depends On How Empathetic You Are, http://www.iflscience.com/brain/your-musical-taste-and-sophistication-depends-how-empathetic-you-are

"...those who are better at understanding the feelings of others prefer romantic, relaxing music like soft rock and some R&B, whereas those who focus on the minute details of things tend to listen to more technically complex music, such as traditional jazz. If you're curious as to which side of the cognitive fence you fall on, don't fret: head along to Musical Universe, an online quiz developed by the researchers, to find out." http://www.musicaluniverse.org/
"It takes a lot of devotion and work, or maybe I should say play, because if you love it, that's what it amounts to. I haven't found any shortcuts, and I've been looking for a long time."
-- Chet Atkins

Emotion and Music go hand in hand for sure. Our taste in music depends on our mood and whatever music is playing at the time effects our mood as well.
