    I think you should get the Bernstein "Unanswered Question" video lecture series.  It is fantastic.  I posted a small audio clip from it last week.  

    Amazon has it for $99.

    Your local library might also have the whole thing available for you and save you some bucks.  I can't recommend it enough.  It doesn't just talk about why minor sounds "sadder" than major.  It goes into a great many aspects of what music is and why it affects us.  Best music lecture series EVER.
