The functionality is a member logs in or a user can browse the song list

members have to be rcognised by the database which i havnt done yet

and non members can join which i have done and linked to the database but does not remember as a member,

a member has a personal library also where the songs that they browse can be added to their personal library

Although you can store large binary data blobs (such as MP3s) in a database, I recommend you store the media files as normal files in the filesystem. Use the database to store meta data--that is data about the media files, but not the media files themselves.
