Is there anyway of doing this from outside the US.

Theres a few songs not released here in UK, and I have credit in dollars my Amazon.com account. But the downloading mp3 feature does not work.
Surely there is some fairly simple way round it ?

I don't know about Amazon but certainly with iTunes you can register an account on whatever store you want then make purchases using gift vouchers. There are several sites online selling the vouchers for the various different regions. I know a few people that did this for the purpose of getting US TV shows that aren't available on our store.

You need to make a store account for whatever region you want - give it a nonsense address and opt to not enter any credit card details. Once thats done you can switch between the stores by clicking on the flag at the bottom of the store.

The purchased content from both stores can reside in the same library without any problems but if you did want to keep it all separate probably the simplest option would be to make another Windows/OSX user account on your computer

Perhaps try connecting to amazon.com through a vpn?
Securitykiss give you a 300mb a day vpn allowance for free which is more than enough to grab a few mp's with.
They have a simple client that gives you a choice of geographic locations.
Worth a spin I reckon.
