For those of you who mentioned that you enjoyed song S, it was Stolen Moments by Oliver Nelson. A really great recording of that tune with horns is the 1961 album The Blues and the Abstract Truth.

I remember it more as "Benny's from Heaven."

Say it ain't so! Hope you are wrong. You may have a vast audience out there (like me): folks who are on the verge of pulling the plug and will be out there looking for more entertainment.

Something went wrong with QuickTime and I haven't heard your samples but was able to listen to ERD50's link to "Take Five" and I shouted out "Tijuana Taxi." My Herb Alpert records from the '60s are worn out but I've kept them for their album covers.

Thanks for livening up the board.

I upgraded QuickTime because of the last post. Then cut and pasted each shortcut into it just to see what you'll were talking about. It probably should have happened when I clicked on Songwhatever in Al's note but nothing happened. What do I have to turn on?

As you have Quicktime installed, all you need to do is click on each link in Al's post (above) which will open a new window in your browser and will start playing the music selection. Then come back here and click on the next link. Wash, rinse repeat.

I don't recall having made any changes to any settings in Quicktime.

Dude,

What happens when you double click on an MP3 filename in windows? If it doesn't play, then you need to associate a player with MP3 files. Choose Start/My Computer then choose Tools/Folder Options, click on the File Types tab.

Scroll down and select MP3, select the Change... button, and select Windows Media Player as the application for this file type.

Hope that helps.

Doesn't play the sites you linked to with either Quicktime or Windows Media Player when associated with file type MP3. I routinely listen to other files sent to me via email with the MP3 type no problem. Wonder what it is about this forum that is giving me problems with my setup. Thanks for trying, anyway.
