For those who don't have Advanced Streaming Format or RealAudio playback capability, we've provided the sound track to "A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody" in six common audio file formats, so that you can choose the format appropriate for your browser and operating system. Although most browsers contain built-in support for .au files, our recommendation, if you have the proper player software and codec (coder/decoder or compressor/decompressor), is the MPEG-2 Audio Layer III file (apg-2.mp3), due to its small size and relatively high audio quality.
