    I know how to add a background sound to a web page, however I'm not sure how to make this available upon clicking on a hyperlink.

    Let me explain what I am trying to do because I am probably going about this the wrong way. I have a songs page on my website with bookmarks that take you to a particular song of your choice where the words are listed. I would like to include a link or a button alongside this so the tune can be played.

    Thanks in advance.

    It will have to be downloaded regardless unless you have a server that can stream the particular media you are playing. In general they will play on the end users PC if they have the application to play it with.

    You can do it this way as well and the player will be on the web page with a start and stop button.

    Or create a text file called "something.m3u" with Notepad. Put the filename of the song to be played in the text file. Upload the songs and the m3u files, then use a normal link to the m3u file to play the song.
