Audacity wave 44.1kh, cut around 2 full beats, aprox 20 seconds.
some dynamic compression, if needed.
filter some bass
normalize the volume
64kbit mono mp3, lame usally under 160Kb, or the size limit for MMS.
I did some 48kbit tests but the freq cut off and warbling compression artifacts were a bit too much. Same thing for 96kbit stereo.
*edit* Found another one on the hard drive, bit overfiltered, but it's got that classic chip feel.
