It's not possible I think, as far as I know the music in the game is in a format similar to midi that we can't really replicate. The game also had that built in feature to let you put your own music CD in your computer and play it from inside the game while driving.
I just make a youtube or spotify playlist and listen to that while playing MM2 now.

The music in MM2 use DirectMusic format, an old feature of DirectX libraries, so it can change according by what happens during the gameplay, like the guitar riff sound heard when jumping, and like the music change while starting and ending a police chase. They're kinda made like the MIDI format, with music pentagrams and instruments set. Make the own musics in this way is certainly complicated, and so far, nobody ever tried or succeeded in doing it...
If you want to listen to any kind of music, just keep any sort of music player in background in execution while playing the game, that's it.
