One of those connections that makes sense except you'd never have thought of it...

Jack, completely agree. I felt it worthwhile to c&p the summary:

"People who deeply grasp the pain or happiness of others also process music differently, say researchers. The study in Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience compared MRI scans of low- and high-empathy people. Higher empathy people process music like a pleasurable proxy for a human encounter -- in brain regions for reward and social awareness. The findings may have implications for the function of music now and in our evolutionary past". (Copied from Science Daily).
