Just use a bunch of left joins to get to your answer:

    ,s1.song_name as song_1
    ,s2.song_name as song_2
    ,s3.song_name as song_3
    ,s4.song_name as song_4
    ,s5.song_name as song_5
    TableA a
    LEFT JOIN TableB s1
    ON a.song_1 = s1.song_id 
    LEFT JOIN TableB s2
    ON a.song_2 = s2.song_id
    LEFT JOIN TableB s3
    ON a.song_3 = s3.song_id 
    LEFT JOIN TableB s4
    ON a.song_4 = s4.song_id
    LEFT JOIN TableB s5
    ON a.song_5 = s5.song_id
