To me this even sounds like a stupid question.  I have a file on my desk top of some guitar music I downloaded that I'm going to try and use in a Keynote presentation.  It is in mp3 format.    It's 5 minutes long.  When I double click on it it plays fine on my iMac speakers.  But it's not in iTunes its just on my desktop, how do I turn it off if I don't want to listen to all 5 minutes of it?  I'm playing like 6 of these files for a friend to pick which music he likes and we don't want to have to listen to the entire songs if when I start them he doesn't like them at all.  I don't see any sort of media player so how do I listen to 20 seconds of it and then turn it off!?
