Question Music samples


I was wondering if anyone knows of a good place to get music samples (the 30-sec samples of songs on CDs). I've usually used Amazon in the past, but, I can't seem to use that under Linux (I believe they use an .exe or something like that to direct you to the realplayer file). Thanks in advance.

I searched for an album there and clicked on a track and realplay gave me this error:

Code:
The content you are trying to play uses an audio codec that is obsolete and no longer supported. Please contact the content provider about using a supported codec.

Have you tried mplayer (compiled with realplayer codecs support) ?

I haven't tried it and that might work, but it still doesn't solve the original problem of finding a site with those realplayer samples available (unless the Amazon method can somehow be made to work under Linux with mplayer).
