Is there any application is linux similar to windows media player where I can search online for music

I want to search by artist or song online (with in field provided in the application). windows media player provides a search button where I can search for a title and find the free resources online and play song in the windows media player. In my computer in Linux OS (RH - 9.0) I have XMMS, Real Player 10,VLC and XINE players, but they all they have is a provision to play online music provided i type the http link in the file selection menu, I dont want an application like this. I want one similar to windows media player ;)  where i can search online. i hate working in windows OS but i have to admit windows media player has great functionality. Is there any application in linux which is similar to windows media player. Hey did i say it has to be free...

I don't think any of the Linux media players will allow you to search like the Windows Media Player. You may however be able to run Windows Media Player under Linux with the help of CodeWeavers CrossOver software: http://www.codeweavers.com/
It does run Media Player 6.4
... but it's not free.

"Wine" might also be able to run Media player under Linux.
"Wine is not an Emulator" so you prob. won't get any performance issues either

Just google for "wine linux"
Look at this list of Windows/Linux equivalents for some more information too:
http://linuxshop.ru/linuxbegin/win-lin-soft-en/table.shtml

They suggest one of the following:XMMS (X multimedia system).
2) Noatun.
3) Zinf. (former Freeamp)
4) Winamp.
5) Xamp.
6) GQmpeg.
7) SnackAmp.
8) Mplayer. (Frontend: Kplayer).
9) Xine. (Frontends: Sinek, Totem)

The CrossOver software is Wine based. CrossOver is one of the major contributors to Wine :-)
