I really doubt you'll be able to compress it that much. You could PM Tom Fulp and ask him to increase your file size limit so that you could submit it.

I think there's also a way to make it so that it gets stuff from another source. So you could make it so it grabs the music from a website that you uploaded it to. I could be wrong about that, but if you want to do it you could ask about it in the flash forum. I recommend you just ask Tom to increase your file size though.

Also, if you PM Tom and ask him to increase the file size, I recommend you upload it to The NG Dump and include a link to it in the PM. I think he only increases your submission size limit if he knows that it's a quality submission.

This might be a bit outdated, but some of it could still be relevant. Also, I think you should ask this in the Flash Forum. If there's no way you can get it below the 20 MB limit, then PM Tom and ask him for permission to submit your file.
