You could install something like the Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder or (better-but a tad more complicated to use) Sony Soundforge. As another contributor points out however, this MAY require some subtle changes in your computer sound control. If you right-click on the small loudspeaker icon at the bottom, right-hand corner of you screen, you will see a pop-up window which has Playback and Recording selections (along the top). You might get lucky and these will remain as set but if you are faced with a record or replay problem from your new software, that will most likely be the place from where to resolve it! A lot will depend on what audio device your computer uses, as well.
I'm not trying to make it sound difficult. Once you've got it set up, it should record anything you are listening to on you PC. Personally, I use Adobe Audition (which is brilliant) but I bought it some time ago and currently Adobe have different arrangements for those who want their products which calls for an on-going subscription; A bit heavy if you're only using them for occasional home use!
Best wishes and good luck.

You could go to a site like amazon music.com and purchase songs from there.

Or you could install a program like Audacity, start it recording then go to the website that's playing music and let it record that. Then you can edit just the music you want with Audacity. You might need to fiddle around with the Windows mixer settings to get Audacity to listen for audio signals coming from an internal source like your web browser.

Are these slide shows for commercial use or just for family?
