Music on my site

I added some music on my site with the <bgsound> tag.  This works perfectly in IE but the tag is not recognised by Netscape.  What can I do so that this music file is supported by both browsers?

This is an answer so that you can give me the points.

egbservices, since HIDDEN is set to "TRUE" you don't have to specify height/width (if the control is hidden there's no need to tell the browser what it should look like...). Also, LOOP="TRUE" means that the file will be played until the visitor leaves. LOOP="1" on the other hand (not even sure you can use numbers to specify an actual count) could be done by setting LOOP to "FALSE" or omitting it.

You can't do it with Netscape! (At the moment) Its only supported by MSIE.

The only way it to get the user to download some software.
(Most users can't be bothered with that though!)

I use the following and is seems to work fine... I don't know why the width, height & controlls are there! Loop=1 is better then =true so it only plays once... volume=100 can be annoying to some as it is quite loud in some cases.

<p><embed src="mid/equinox.mid" hidden=true autostart=true loop=1 volume=100 width=51 height=15 controls=smallconsole>

Rupert's answer wann't the right one I'm afraid.  MARTINAG's on the contrary did fine, so please give HIM my points.
Thanks.
Eric.
