You may use the audio tag for it:

However you will need both MP3 and OGG to make it compatible with IE, FF and Chrome.

And no, you don't have the right to re-distribute music even if you say you didn't do it. Radio have to pays fees for doing their jobs, I doubt you pay the same fees yourself. So clearly you do illegal business unless you use open content musics.

Use YouTube and hide the video interface? Seems like an easy approach to getting a plethora of music on your site without having to upload dozens of potentially copyrighted music files.

Then again maybe the hiding of the interface is against YT's terms for using the video player.

Instead of using an mp3 player and uploading all these mp3 files (which may or may not be legal), use the video player that YouTube supplies and just hide the video part, that way you have a lot more choice for music than your music collection.

There is another way, though I confess I don't know how to do it. Could just stream from sites such as Pandora and the like.

Also, on a gaming network I've been part of for some time now, they used to have it set up so that you could link to a song on certain sites and the song would play when anyone visited your profile.

Note that, for obvious security reasons, this was eventually discontinued, and I wouldn't advise it, but yeah, there are ways to do it.

Also, if you even did add mp3 songs to your site, you would have to worry about bandwidth skyrocketing. I am assuming that every time a player clicks a link they would go to a new page, and the song would have to download again (should the browser cache not hold it). An easy 4MB mp3 would tear apart bandwidth on a limited server

I'm not a lawyer but from what I gather then embedding youtube videos and hiding the player is fine but that doesn't make you immune with copyright issues. Although your using content from another site you may still be responsible for it as you specifically added it yourself and so you are now posting the material instead of it being from a third party source.

few things to concider...

1 when users switches between pages does the MP3 auto start cos that could become annoying

2 users on slower connections may experience mega lagg till the MP3 has fully loaded...

3 What if your users dont like the music your playing that could put them off your game..
