    I know that you can go to "Slide Show" "Slide Transition" and then add sound, but the damn song keeps playing.

    How can I add a .wav file to just one slide?

    Add music or sound effects to a slide
    Display the slide to which you want to add music or sound effects.
    On the Insert menu, point to Movies and Sounds, and then do one of the following:

    Click Sound from Clip Organizer, scroll to find the clip you want, and click it to add it to the slide.
    Note To do a search for clips in Clip Organizer, click Modify. To get more information about finding the clip you want, click Tips for Finding Clips at the bottom of the task pane; it gives details on finding files using wildcards and adding your own clips to the Clip Organizer.

    When a message is displayed, do one of the following:
    To play the music or sound automatically when you go to the slide, click Yes.
    To play the music or sound only when you click the sound icon , click No.
    To adjust settings for when the sound file stops: click the sound icon , right-click, and on the shortcut menu, click Custom Animation.
    In the Custom Animation task pane, click the arrow on the selected item in the Custom Animation list, and then click Effect Options.
    On the Effect tab, under Stop playing, do one of the following:
    To stop the sound file on mouse-click of the slide, select On click (the default).
    To stop the sound file after this slide, click After current slide.
    To keep the sound file playing for several slides, click After, and then set the total number of slides the file should play on.
