Next Monday is my turn to give the PowerPoint presentation, and I wanna use a song as my PowerPoint’s background music in case that my listeners would become bored. Finally I find and buy a suitable song in iTunes store, but a problem arises, PowerPoint is not compatible with this iTunes song since it is in m4a format that only works with iPod or iTunes. What should I do to add iTunes song to PowerPoint? Any suggestions?

Maybe you can burn the purchased iTunes songs to a blank CD using iTunes and then re-import them into MP3.
