I use Rhapsody to play unlimited music from their library for $10 per month,
which is fairly extensive... lots of jazz albums I would not otherwise
listen to.   You can set you own playlists by searching their library.  The
music will only play on you PC.  For an extra $5 you can download the
'portable' version of the music that can be uploaded to a player (not the
iPod, however), but not transferred or burned to CD.

On the Mac PPC (G5 dual running OSX 10.4.7) it works on both Safari and
FireFox 2+, but works better in FireFox.  Not perfect, but better... with
occasional crashes and scrollbars disappearing.

Since this runs in a browser environ, there are probably many issues that
limit fabulous performance.
