Perhaps everyone else understands, but what do you mean by "struck" sound?
Do you mean a sudden or violent sound? An increase in volume?

I've experienced that playing some .mpg video files with different players. Xine didn't skip at all, but noatun and kaboodle skipped.

Since your instance only occurs in a few songs, is it possible that those CDs are dirty or sratched?

This is happeng because u have a small buffer.Open xmms,go to preferinces(Cntrl+P),and iin the output module choose configure(there are aRts,ALSA,OSS...),and increase your buffer

This is just a stab in the dark. Did you copy from windows hdd. If you did, maybe try running defrag and copy again. I have my music on fat 32 partition and this seems to help.
