Plus I change mine up often. I also have some artists like the Beatles on there and you cannot download them from itunes so this is a way for me to get the music, and did I mention it was free!
It's totally fair enough that you enjoy blog music and want it on your blog, and I can understand your reasons.

One thing I will say is - I tend to watch TV shows in a window on my laptop, while surfing. So, when I open a blog with music on, it can be quite jarring (volume differences always seem to mean that the music comes blaring out), and then I have to figure out where on the page I can turn it off (on some blogs this is quite taxing).

For people that do enjoy having music on their blogs, it may be worth investigating whether you can have a widget with the option that music only starts when requested, not on the page loading.
