   I've no hard facts, except an informal survey that's not much better 
than anecdote, but I can report that I have never encountered a user who 
liked having music on a site. The survey: I had to talk a manager out of 
putting a "theme tune" on a large corporate site at one point, and we took 
it as far as an informal survey of employees in the company (about 400 
people). The result? 100% opposition, when you left out the manager and his PA.
