    Add it as an attachment to your email.

    Not sure how it works in Windows but there should be an add attachment button in your email app.

    Click on it, navigate to your music folder and select the song and it should be saved as an attachment to your email which you can now send.

    Depends upon what format the file is on your machine.

    Do this. Go to iTunes>Select the song>Right-click>Get info

    The "Kind" and "Format" values in the "Summary" tab should be "MPEG audio file" and "MPEG-1 Layer 3" or something similar. If they are, then you're cool.

    If not, you can convert the song to MP3 using iTunes and then send it over. It usually works like this:

    With iTunes open, press Ctrl+,
    This should open up Preferences.
    Go to the "Advanced" tab
    Go to Importing.
    "Import Using": MP3 Encoder
    "Setting": High Quality (160kbps)
    Click OK to return to iTunes.

    Now, Select your song>Right-Click>Convert Selection to MP3

    Repeat the Get Info part to check if the file's an MP3 and then email away.

    Incidentally, what do you use to email?

    Hear hear (or is that here here???) I agree. I'm emailng one of our bands songs that is being released as a single soon...

    It's called "Legacy"...check it out at http://www.myspace.com/thelisteningdevice

    It's a bit political as it's about Blairs Legacy but it's a happy tune

    Ah. In that case, I suppose you know how to add attachments to your email message.

    Could you please mark your post as answered?
