How To Add Background MUSIC In Just 5 Commands!

So it took a while to create the script and everything and I also ran out of time for this project but here it is.
How to add background music with just 5 commands.
I have a script on my site that once downloaded and ran, it will setup the music with some options such as adult music on/off, manual on/off, boot-up with music on/off and also playing music over the games.
I hope to return to this project in the future for improvements if needed.

@installtekz Any thoughts on adding a track-skip option to the menu? Maybe uploading to Github? Thanks! I love the tutorial and the work you did!

@installtekz Thank You for all your work on this script.
I installed on RetroPie v4.7.1 and it works flawlessly.
For a "track-skip" Option, here's what I'm using for a Script 'Music Next Track.sh':
pkill -KILL mpg123
mpg123 -z /home/pi/RetroPie/music/*.mp3 &> /dev/null &
Also, I wanted more visibility after changing Settings, so I'm calling your 'info.sh' after any scripts that modify the settings.
Example of 'Startup With Music On.sh' calling your info script after :
echo "1" > /home/pi/music_settings/onoff.flag

Just... wow. I tried a few different things to do what this does. I can't believe this is the first time I have found this particular thread considering how often I searched for BG Music for RetroPie!!
I installed it just 10 minutes ago on a PiCade running Buster 4.7.16 I think. (It's fully updated as of this post). Works FLAWLESSLY with the Arcade Ambience MP3s.
