I listen to various types of music including new and old. I've been interested for some time why it is that I particularly enjoy some music such as the "top 50 billboard chart songs"? My question is how is it that people know what "good music" is and how is it possible to derive a pattern or equation to a good song that is familiar with the general public?

See this response for some remarks that may be relevant here, as well.
