FWIW, my initial thought is that a user of ND probably
chose that license so keep terrible techno renditions
from being made of his beloved classical track (for
instance), not realizing the side effect that he's
making the song non-synchable.
When in doubt, you can always direct-license if the
song you absolutely can't do without is under ND. It's
not a perfect solution, but it does remove all doubt.
This is probably not as hard as it seems, since the
contact info is likely to be found right on the
webpage where you got the download from.
