There's already robots who can write music that's indistinguishable from human composers. While it will take far longer than most jobs to be automated, no job on Earth is 100% safe, simply because computers will eventually be able to do everything a human can do. After all, we are merely complicated biological machines, and our emotions are the predicable result of biochemical processes in the brain.
