It sounds to me like you have some kind of downloading program installed that is stealing off all the bandwidth, making it impossible for iTunes to stream songs. Since this only happens when Safari is open, obviously that's where we should look for the culprit.

You can use Activity Monitor to see what process Safari is using that's eating up your bandwidth, but at a guess I'd say you installed Speed Download (wretched program) or something like it on your Mac at some point and it's trying to re-download things that didn't complete for whatever reason. SD is designed to eat ALL the bandwidth it can in that quest, which is why people hate it and generally uninstall it sooner rather than later.
