   Please excuse the simplistic nature of this question.  

No question too simple here :-)

   Do any of the HTML standards define a global background sound tag?

HTML Pro does.

   Microsoft Internet Explorer has the BGSound, Netscape uses Embed, etc.
   However, is there a generic tag that I am missing somewhere?

No, neither browser maker has thought it worth harmonizing this,
because they firmly believe that each new element gives them a
commercial edge over the other.
