even though the file has an mp3 extension, it is in fact an mp2
beaTunes uses QuickTime to open the file and fails, as the
extension does match the contents. As a matter of fact, on OS X
QuickTime Player can't open the file labeled as mp3 either. Rename
it to a mp2 extension and things work just fine.
You might want to check the Get Info dialog of iTunes - it says
Mpeg-1, Layer 2.
