I always thought it's a-minor... ;-)
The emotion of keys is related to our culture. In the past there was a 
real difference, as there was no ET. Now we learn according what our 
teachers and Hollywood tells us. If every movie puts up d minor for the 
sad parts, thats our symbol for sadness, it doesn't mean that its 
inherent in the key. And for those who don't suffer from the perfect 
pitch desease, it could be as well a-minor...
