pygame.mixer.music.load() cannot handle unicode filenames

Issue #247 duplicate

created an issue

This code caused an error:

pygame.mixer.music.load('m├║sicaDeFondo.mid')

But when I renamed the file and changed the line to this:

pygame.mixer.music.load('musicaDeFondo.mid')

...it worked fine. I believe the load() function cannot properly handle unicode filenames.

This was on Windows 7 running Python 3.4.3
