Music butthead

All I want to do is have background music play throughout my movie (As soon as the site has loaded. So NO button needed to start the music).

I’d like it to be in a movie clip so I can have greater control over it. You know, like turn it on/off, control the volume.

I feel like such a butthead. I just can’t seem to get the background music to work. I’ve looked at the tutorials (dynamic mp3, loading an swf with a sound file in it, etc) and I still don’t get it.

If someone could provide an FLA or a really dumbed down explanation on where the Actions go, or generally what’s the best way to do this, that would be cool.

I’ve been at this for two days…thus the butthead complex.
