If you want something like wallmart music without the DRM there is
always http://allofmp3.com. I believe the RIAA says it is illegal in
the US, and I've certainly heard people say that it is run by a
Russian organized crime syndicate, but the prices are tough to beat
and you can download in your choice of format including Vorbis and
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AllOfMP3.com has some discussion on the
legality of using the site in the US and other places.
