Command line peer to peer client

Hi guys, I'm looking for a command line P2P client that I can search and download from. Maybe something similar to the way bit torrents work, as in being able to search for torrents in links2 and download them with wget. Torrents would serve my purposes, but typically I can't find just one song. Instead I find the entire album or even a compilation of albums! Frustrating. Anyway, thanks for any suggestions!
