Want to isolate only song from a film.....


I am a totall new person in this world of audio editing and use wavepad sound editor to edit only songs or movie clips...now theee is this song that I want to isolate from all the dialogues that the actors say when the song is playing and please don't suggest me to download that song as that is what I don't want to do. So guyz please help me to how isolate only that song from everything else.

Sure. It's as easy as taking all the sugar out of a cake that is already baked.
Elements of an audio file are mixed frequencies, not separate elements.
You can't just 'unmix' stuff easily.

So what you saying it is impossible... Alright Atleast tell me how can I lower the volume of their voices and increase the music volume at the time of playback.

You still dont get it. Here is a stereo audio file:
There is a single moving voltage for the left channel and a moving voltage for the right channel.
Everything is mixed and contained in that moving voltage driving the speaker.
There are no separate elements to adjust.

Is this the part where I tell you to just find another recording of the song?
There is no way for you to isolate just the part you want. You could do some EQing, but I doubt you'll get any positive results.

What the OP is thinking is basically impossible as of this day but I really hope it could actually be done in the future. :)
Anyway I think the best that you could do is just to look for the tile of that song and download it. I'm pretty sure you'll have it in a quick 3-5 minutes.
