is there a possibility to get a different background on each page?
page1 = background_image01.jpg
page2 = background_image02.jpg
page3 = background_image03.jpg

If the pages are different types then...

within the template (*.ss)

<% Classname = PageTypeOne %> background_image01.jpg <% end_if %>
<% Classname = PageTypeTwo %> background_image02.jpg <% end_if %>

or by the URLSegment...

<% URLSegment= pageone %> background_image01.jpg <% end_if %>
<% URLSegment= pagetwo %> background_image02.jpg <% end_if %>

Or try something like this to add a bgimage to each page:

<?php
class Page extends SiteTree {
   
   static $has_one = array(
      'BackgroundImage'   =>   'Image'
   );
   
   function getCMSFields(){
      $fields = parent::getCMSFIelds();
      $bgImage= new FileIFrameField("BackgroundImage", "BackgroundImage");
      $bgImage->setFolderName('backgrounds');
      $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.BackgroundImage", $bgImage);
      
      return $fields;
   }
}

class Page_Controller extends ContentController {

   public function init() {
      parent::init();
      if($this->BackgroundImage()){
         Requirements::insertHeadTags('<style type="text/css">html{ background: url('.$this->BackgroundImage()->FileName.') no-repeat 50% 0;}</style>'
         );
      }   
   }   
}

if would recommend @Martijn's solution,

but if you want some random background image for any page without checking the page type I'd rather go with a decorator to the SiteConfig.php

eg

<?php

class BackgroundDecorator extends DataObjectDecorator{

public function extraStatics(){
return array(
"Images" => "BackgroundDecorator_Image"
);
}

public function updateCMSFields($fields){
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Backgrounds", new TableField($this, "Images", "BackgroundDecorator_Image", array("Title" => "Title")));
}

public function getRandomImage($fields){
return DataObject::get_one("BackgroundDecorator_Image", "SiteConfig = {$this->owner->ID}", false, "RAND()");
}

}

class BackgroundDecorator_Image extends DataObject{

static $db = array(
"Title" => "Varchar"
);

static $has_one = array(
"Image" => "Image",
"SiteConfig" => "SiteConfig"
);

}

so you will be able to use $SiteConfig.getRandomImage.Image from your templates.
