1+ for that! MPlayer right from the terminal is all you really need.
If you need a GUI, XMMS on Slackware is just fine for me.
I like the light and simple audio players like MPlayer, XMMS, Audacious, Aqualung and Deadbeef.

Does anyone know if Aqualung is still being maintained? The most recent "news" on the Aqualung website is from 01-31-2010:

I am another mpd/ncmpcpp user. Though I find plain old mpc ultra convenient for scripting.

I still keep deadbeef on my machine in case someone with a fear of the CLI uses my machine...

Thumbs up TY

I still like Clementine I just never use it. VLC is lightweight and loads\runs faster (plus from a recent list that is awesome).

Hard to decide between Amarok and Clementine, but I'm going for Clementine this time.
