I would like to know this information as well.  I have a specific song that has been requested to be on the home page and can't find a URL for it. 

Any suggestions??

Is the song you have in mind just a song that someone told you about or is it hosted somewhere?

The only why to get music on your site is to first upload that song to a hosting site, then paste the URL that that site gives you to the page you want it to play on.

You could try: http://www.mediamax.com/Brands/MediaMax/home/home.aspx

But I've found that their free hosting has very limited bandwidth so if you site sees daily traffic you will axseed the bandwidth within a week or two and be with out your music for the rest of the month.

A whole song is usually WAY too much for what most folks want to hear.  I found a song online that I liked, took a snippet at the front end, then contacted the artist to obtain permission to use it. I uploaded the snippet to my Comcast webspace to link to for our site.  I'm sure it's not optimized because I'm still a web design noob, but if you visit our site and wait a little, you'll see what I mean. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and you'll see where I've credited the artist.  It's really nice Celtic music!

I was referred to use a quick time plug in as the best music addition to the site by Didokova.  I just haven't figured it out completely yet.  Pull up one of his threads to get the link to his site to see what I mean.

It has control settings from the viewer of your page which is nice cuz sometimes the music can be annoying.
