The other thing, allow a little time when you first select to play a 
track because it took a while here for the first one to start playing. 
But this probably depends on how fast your internet connection is 
because it seems that nothing will happen until the site loads all the 
little icons at the bottom of each track and when I was trying this out 
I had a VERY slow connection (some problem upstream from my ISP).
