How does music elicit emotion?

Paul Tuddenham  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
What is it that makes my whole being go into into a tranquil, joyous state when I hear some good blues or a Mendelssohn violin concerto?

Why also does country and western make me feel that my brain is being pierced by nasty arrows?
 
 
E. Paul Tuddenham

What do you think?
