I am making my first ever site and i want some backround music, i was wandering is anyone knew where i could get some background music?

You need to make sure you use small files for background music to ensure quick loading times so MIDI files are ideal. A good site for these is below:

This is the bit where I come in and say how intensely I dislike background musak on websites. My No. 1 irritant. I know it might seem like a fun thing to do but along with visible counters it broadcasts ultimate "naffness".

Sorry but I don't think I am the only one.

Patr100, no you're not the only one. I agree with you. I maintain 9 commercial websites and none of them have background music, and only one of them insisted on a "hit counter". If you want to listen to music whilst surfing put a CD in, at least it's your choice of music and not what someone else thinks you want to listen to.

In my opinion it very much depends on the nature of the site.

I have a personal web site with some moving panorama pictures of various locations on Crete. I consider that some Greek background music is quite appropriate.

It might annoy some, but from feedback I have received, many others like it. If you decide to reconsider, here is a good midi source site:
