Songs purchased from the iTunes Music Store are in a restricted format
that can't be opened by other programs.
However, you can convert an iTunes song to a standard format by burning it to a CD, and then importing it from the CD using iTunes in MP3 or AIFF format. (You can choose the import format in the iTunes preferences.)
