This is one of the areas when SMIL would be useful.

(For those who don't know what SMIL is...) SMIL is a markup language like HTML.  But designed with our type of stuff in mind.

With it, swap out a song (in SMIL) as easily as you could swap out an image (in HTML).

See ya

We are not having a problem at all right now, but I always think
about this with regards to our theme song that we have adopted, "Zoom
a Little Zoom".

It came from an album called "Space Songs" with Tom Glazer, a popular
1940's folk musician:

Unlike the rest of the albums in the six-LP set produced around the
same time, this album experienced a lapse in copyright and for some
reason, perhaps accidentally (I think they simply forgot at the
time), the album entered into the public domain.

Today, as we have adopted the song for Rocketboom, the song seems to
be "at risk" of becoming more associated with Rocketboom than it's
original context. We also often use the other songs in the album to
tie in our own thematic.

Its just something I'm curious about; I wouldn't want to go back and
take down or edit out all that music in the future.
