Default Music While in Game?

I play games maximized, (obviously) anyway, my old keyboard had media functions on it to switch songs while I'm listening in WMP10, now I got a new gaming keyboard w/out media keys, just volume. And I use WMP10 and Winamp5, is there anyway to switch songs while I'm in a game, like create a shortcut for it. Or is there already a shortcut

Anyway besides ALt-Tabbing!?!?!?

I think I remember the shortcut keys being listed under the "File" menu. However I am pretty sure that the application has to be in the foreground to work...

I don't think you can do it unless you incorperate a script into the game (which usually is a hack...).

However I know if you use iTunes, and the MultiPlugin, it emulates itself as winamp and you can control it however you want with whatever keys you want, so that might help, but otherwise iTunes is gay.

I believe that Foobar has a way to set shortcuts for controlling music while the player is not in the foreground.
