To anwer your question, I think that amarok supports lastfm subscriptions, but I have not tried it myself. I am still the kind of guy that likes going to a shop, and there're online stores for these things I can not find in my local store.

i've looked into this previously and run into several barriers, most notably DRM that means you have to use windows media player on xp/2000/vista otherwise you cant register/play anything. i have heard of DRM-free sites but these are usually for indie labels so the only bands on there are ones you've never heard of..You know, aliens are going to come to earth in 50 years and kill the hell out of us for DDoSing their networks with this SETI crap

Only half-way on topic, but have you looked at the magnatune integration in Amarok? You can listen to anythng you want and you pay for what you want to keep. It works quite well. Also Last.fm would provide you with some pretty cool music services to play with, and you can subscribe to get a lot of extra functionality.
Amarok includes support for this too.
