To keep music playing while users browse the site, you have to do one of three things:

1) Code your site so you never technically load a new page.  This means using AJAX to load all your content
2) Open a popup window and have the music play in the new window
3) Use frames to split the site from the music player.
Recycle your old CD's, don't trash them!

I've read studies that show that adding background music to a site results in something like 50% of your users will immediately leave the site.

indeed. "If you play music that some people do not enjoy, they may leave your site before browsing." tsk tsk

Even if its music I would enjoy, it's probably going to clash with whatever tv show I'm playing on Hulu/Netflix.
My goal in replying to posts is to help you become a better programmer, including learning how to debug your own code and research problems. For that reason, rather than posting the solution, I reply with tips and hints on how to find the solution yourself. See below for useful links when you get stuck.

What do you  mean "so please write the code for me . . . "? We aren't here in gleeful anticipation just waiting to write code for you, you know.
