This type of file is notorious for slowing pages down. You need to google the file format & reducer IE: "mp3 file reduction" or "mp3 for web use"
There will be usually a free ware that will do this, but will only get the file down by half.

this is how i do it. i make a video lets say wmv in my movie maker software. i include the song with a video. lets say the song is 3 minutes long. then the video part would match that. if i want to keep the video i continue to make the movie. if i only want the sound i delete the video part. make the wmv file, then convert to swf. it plays right away. no waiting.

umm you can invest in a Music Flash player with a buffer range on it... it wont slow your page loading and the buffer starts to stream the music after a set time you adjust so after about 5 seconds music starts even though the download has yet to finish... Microsoft Music player in BV doesnt start playing until the entire music file is downloaded and effectsthe page loading
