    Yeah whenever I try to like play a game or something while listening to a song, the song pauses.

    Is it not possible to have the song playing while you are doing other things on the Ipod? Or is it just some games in particular, I even unabled the sounds for one of the game. But it still pauses the song I'm listening to.

    Does the Ipod work like that? Doing 2 things at once...or am I trying to make it do something it doesn't even do? haha

    Some games do that. They override the music playing and play their own sounds instead. You have to turn off the music and sometimes sound of the game so you can listen to your own. Some games have an "iPod" mode so you can play your own music and at the same time, hear the sounds but not background music of a game.

    ...And some games take up so much memory, it's impossible to play music in the background.

    Oh ok thanks just checking. I guess I will have to look at each one and see which ones allow you to play music still.

    What about using wi-fi and being online and what not, can you listen to music then still?

    Of course, since they're not playing any sound.

    Is there any streaming music apps that can play in the background?

    No you just double tap home button and press play while in the game.

    If you are jailbroken then the app "Backgrounder" should work.
