Now this doesn't particularly pertain to working with audio in a Timeline, but one of the tricks you can do with audio is actually add it to the background of a menu. So that way while users are watching your menu trying to figure out what to pick, they have a nice little audio track in the background kind of entertaining them and keeping them company. The way to do this is simply import an audio track. I've already done that for you here, and simply drag and drop it onto a menu. Now don't drag and drop it onto a button or anything, just some blank area in the background and just let go.
Now the bummer here is there's no confirmation saying, hey good job. You added audio to a menu or anything. It just happened. To double-check it, you can click the menu in the Project panel to see it in the Properties panel here. Then click the Motion tab, which doesn't really make very much sense at all, but in the Motion tab there is an audio area and here is the audio track that we've added. You can also additionally use the pick whip to select an audio track to use as well.
