You may not need extra custom tables. Create a custom post type for songs. Then store all the required data (link, name, date, size, etc.) as post meta data.

The songs would be stored in the wp_posts table and the metadata in wp_postmeta.

  • but one Movie Song page will contain on many songs on one page so how i'll save the details of all songs in meta deta like for example Key = song Name value = i love u forevevr an other song name on the same page is key = song Name value = let's party tonight how to call both of these song on the same page and is it will be ok with thousands of songs

Yes, the Codex gives a great introduction in how to create your own database tables here :D.
