    is there a very simple jquery/php script to play a song when someone visits the page? perhaps pulling the mp3 from a directory on the site? there would need to be a stop button.

    I have to agree with SLED

    its for a nightclub/restaurant site. they requested a low volume song to play on the home page ONLY and have apparent stop/play buttons.

    i hate music on sites just as much as the next guy

    Maybe explain to them that music on websites is like letting your 13yr old daughter go to an OT meat wearing a mini skirt.. you'll just end up regretting it once you see people's reactions, and you can never fix their opinion of you once it's done.

    some people are too old fashion and don't think outside of the box. Music is usually a good idea only for entertainment websites dealing with music.

    If you're not selling music products, or dealing with anything in the music industry I would say definitely stay away from music. There's very few exceptions although I have been surprised by some hotel/resort websites that have added value to the experience by giving it an atmosphere using music.
