Why does listening to sad / nostalgic music make me happy?

Eh, I've made a playlist and it has me blubbing quietly but happily. Weird, or what?

John Tams: Over the hills and far away
Heinrich Isaac: Innsbruck, ich muss dich lassen
Leonard Cohen: Hallelujah (the Jeff Buckley cover, which is infinitely better than the Rufus Wainwright)
Tim Buckley: Song to the Siren
Ennio Morricone: Gabriel's oboe
Cristobál de Morales: Parce mihi, Domine
Henry Purcell: When I am laid in earth
Nana Mouskouri: Blow the wind southerly
Tomás Luis de Victoria: O magnum mysterium
Tom Waits: Innocent when you dream
Steeleye Span: Dancing at Whitsun
Thomas Tomkins: Nunc dimittis, from the Third Service
