Psychology and Science of 'Hits' Psychology and Science of 'Hits'

Why is it that we like(to an overwhelming extent) some songs(termed 'hits') and casually treat others? Is there a psychology or a science involved in the tune/musical arrangements/selection of instruments? For songs conveying emotions like sorrow/happiness/fantasy, do certain instruments serve the purpose better than others? Similarly with tunes?
Surely these are things amateur composers have to deal with.
Would like to hear the views of practitioners and composers as it would surely help common rasikas to appreciate music better.
