then this code should work fine....
Just replace the variables "midis[0]" with your wma file path

example
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE = "JavaScript">
now = new Date();
seed = now.getTime();
Mcount = 10;
midis = new Array(Mcount);
names = new Array(Mcount);
var playing;

midis[0] = "yourdirectory/yoursong.wma"; // Song # 1
names[0] = "Your Song Title";

midis[1] = "yourdirectory/yoursong.wma"; // Song # 2
names[1] = "Your Song Title";

midis[2] = "yourdirectory/yoursong.wma"; // Song # 3
names[2] = "Your Song Title";

midis[3] = "yourdirectory/yoursong.wma"; // Song # 4
names[3] = "Your Song Title";

midis[4] = "yourdirectory/yoursong.wma"; // Song # 5
names[4] = "Your Song Title";

midis[5] = "yourdirectory/yoursong.wma"; // Song # 6
names[5] = "Your Song Title";

midis[6] = "yourdirectory/yoursong.wma"; // Song # 7
names[6] = "Your Song Title";

midis[7] = "yourdirectory/yoursong.wma"; // Song # 8
names[7] = "Your Song Title";

midis[8] = "yourdirectory/yoursong.wma"; // Song # 9
names[8] = "Your Song Title";

midis[9] = "yourdirectory/yoursong.wma"; // Song # 10
names[9] = "Your Song Title";


function random(num)
{
ia=9301;
ic=49297;
im=233280;
seed = (seed*ia+ic) % im;
return Math.ceil( (seed/(im*1.0)) * num);
}


function Play_Midi()
{

playing = random(Mcount) - 1;
if (navigator.appName == "Netscape") {
document.write("<embed src=",midis[playing]," hidden=true autostart=true>");
} else {
document.write("<bgsound src=",midis[playing]," loop=1>");
}
}

function Show_Midi()
{

document.write("Now playing : ",names[playing]);
}

</SCRIPT>


Place the following code anywhere between the <body> .... </body> tags

<SCRIPT>
Play_Midi();
Show_Midi();
</SCRIPT>
