Is faster music happier?

I love music. It has a really tangible impact on my day and has the ability to change my mood drastically. For this reason, I wanted to study the effect of popular songs on mood. More specifically, I wanted to see if songs with a faster tempo were generally happier.

To answer this question, I created this Python program that analyzes a dataset of 2000+ songs from Spotify to plot any correlation between the happiness of a given song and its tempo.
