My opinion is that this is way overkill, and that it is also quite hard to 
implement.  You are suggesting, if I understand correctly, that the program 
should track a different score for each label.  

I think this means that I would have to tell the program what label 
corresponds to the mood I am in each listening session and then manually 
select songs I like during that mood session so that some scores develop 
(maybe do it randomly for a while so that songs not appropriate for that mood 
get low scores.  In my opinion, this is way too much work for the listener.  
With 5,000 tracks, it would take me years to develop the stats to do this 

Just my 2 cents.
