Free Wavs found on Internet

****Please keep this in mind before clicking on a link below:  Most of the wavs will not work.  It usually seems like it's the best ones that won't work.  If you keep looking for a particular wav, you will often eventually find it! There are NO full-length songs available for free on the Internet.  Check these out at home.****
****To save, right-click on top of the wav and choose "Save Target As"...save to your "U"--------in the "Save As Type" it must save "Wave Sound" or it will not work (MP3s don't work with PowerPoint)
