Amarok accesses the Magnatune music store.  I believe Songbird also
accesses a search engine linked to different online music stores and
lets you to connect to a account.  Both I believe also sync up
with an iPod or any other MP3 player.  Amarok works with my 2GB Sansa
Clip but it took a while to configure it correctly.

If what you want is a music player that manages music like iTunes does
then look no further than Amarok, Rythmbox, and Songbird.  Songbird is
a music player built from the Mozilla Firefox source code.
