I don't think my dog pays any attention to music. She's got other stuff she can focus on like her favorite people, all the other pets, the squirrels, rabbits, and ground hogs outside, etc.
My bird has a preference. He's not too fond of country probably because my dad blasts it too loud too often. There are other various songs he likes. His favorite is Box of Rain by Grateful Dead. Even if he's pissed off I can start playing that and he'll get in a good mood and start dancing. He perks up, does this dance thing, and sometimes sings if he likes a song. If he doesn't like it, he squawks and sounds angry. He squawks until you shut it off or move him pretty much.
He also has a preference for voices. He hates British accents. Sorry. I don't know why he doesn't like them. He's fine with other accents but British ones really piss him off.

Our love of music had to develop from somewhere. We're just one of the first species to make our own music; nature has been playing Thunder, Rain, and Ocean since forever.
I wonder if other animals besides birds can make music "consciously", and also do so for pure self-enjoyment?
You say that like it's the Earth's band. I like it, very cool.
