Windows 7 iTunes toolbar orientation

I like having the Taskbar vertical on my laptop to maximize the screen space for documents.

I like the iTunes toolbar to advance songs or rate them.

In the vertical position, the iTunes toolbar switches to vertical also, but this makes it very long (about 1.5 inch). Is there someway to change its orientation? Or, are there alternate control bars that I can customize more?
