I got the Flash object containing the Planet Swank theme song to work. Ph33r my L33t Flash skillz! Since no one expressed a preference to my earlier post, the theme song plays after a brief interval, during which playback can be halted by clicking the Stop button. The Stop button is also available during playback; if playback is interrupted, a Play button takes its place. The Play button also appears after the theme plays through once and then stops.
I'm very pleased with the choice of music--"Barefoot in the Park" from the Neon Genesis Evangelion soundtrack. Not only does it convey the appropriately cheesy, lounge-type tuneage I was looking for in a theme song, it's also from an anime series. The moment I heard this tune (after downloading the soundtrack), I knew I'd found the Planet Swank theme.
Since the theme music--formerly a 2.7MB MP3--only requires a 158K Flash file, I'm thinking about next creating a little jukebox of a couple of similarly swank tunes. Watch this space for updates.
