Default Question on Startup/shutdown "sounds"

Im wanting to know if theres any software that can play a song when ever i want to shut down my computer. I know that you can change it in the controll panel just that it only alows about 5 seconds. Im running win xp pro.

You could create a program that would play the sound and then have the computer shutdown...Its kind-of a work around but its possible with Auto-It and other scripts I'm sure.
