Did you previously have any files in Home/Library/Safari/Extensions ?
Currently Being ModeratedMar 19, 2011 6:31 PM (in response to andyBall_uk)Thank you andyball_uk . Good thing I hadn't empty the trash yet.Everything back to the way it was and no music ,unless I'm playing it YEAAAMac OS X (10.6.6)

Currently Being ModeratedMar 19, 2011 7:55 PM (in response to Rushen)I found it, at least for me...It is the GoogleToolBar 1.6 Extension. Just had to uncheck the Enable box.
Currently Being ModeratedMar 19, 2011 8:37 PM (in response to caki)RESOLVED: I knew it was a problem at the user level, since the problem did not recur in my test user account.
Dumping the two .plists didn't work.
I tried trashing everything in the Safari folder dated since the symptom showed; still no joy.
Finally I trashed the entire folder, but I saved the bookmarks .plist onto the desktop.
Fortunately, the problem was not in the bookmarks .plist, because when I brought that file back into the Safari folder, they all read without the annoying music coming back.
Still wondering what caused it. ????iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

Currently Being ModeratedMar 20, 2011 5:00 PM (in response to en maschera)I had the same experience, finally copied the bookmarks.plist to my desktop, trashed everything in the Safari folder, restarted and the annoying song is gone.
but I must say, I would love to know how something like this could happen - it's very invasive.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 20, 2011 5:25 PM (in response to Terrintokyo)maybe you all had an extension in common ?
Currently Being ModeratedMar 21, 2011 9:37 AM (in response to andyBall_uk)I had the same song play whenever I opened or clicked on a Tab in Safari, and it wasn't a song in my library, it was something with French words I think. I managed to get rid of it by moving the Home folder : Library : Safari .plist files for downloads and Session to the Trash.
I didn't need to restart the whole Mac, just quit Safari, Empty the Trash and restart Safari so I was sure it couldn't read those .plist files anymore. I can't be certain that was the fix though, because I also when into Safari Preferences, Extensions and deleted the Google Toolbar extension as that had been listed as a potential issue in this forum.
Of note, a couple days ago I went to some website where it started popping up a YouTube window that was quite small and had all the toolbars turned off and another hidden window with some reference to a sing called Andre Besson ( I think that's it if I remember correctly ). Anyway those windows were very hard to get rid of, because you couldn't access then sometimes even by selecting them in the Windows Menu pane. So I think those Windows may have implanted the code that kept playing the song at every Tab opening.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.6), Intel
Currently Being ModeratedMar 22, 2011 12:40 AM (in response to caki)Once again:
Solution which worked for me:
Disabled GoogleToolBar 1.6 in Safari and restarted Safari. No deletion of any files necessary.
Have a nice spring time beginning!

I wonder if anyone can help?
I have this same issue. It was after visiting youtube also. It's an anoying trance track "I gave you everything" and I've completely emptied the safari library folder and ahve no extensions installed at all.
It's a brand new macbook air with Lion. Straight out of the box nearly.
Please, this song is driving me mad and it's SO invasive.
Any help really appreciated.

I got rid of this simply by
1. Quitting and restarting Safari.
3. Opening a new Safari window, and going to a page with no music. And closing the old window that was open before.
6. Quitting and restarting, but to peace and quiet this time.
I hope this will help others too. (Some of the points above might be obsolete, but I could not test as once the music was gone it stayed gone.)
