I voted for amaroK, although I use Gnome so my day to day is RhythmBox, which I do like, but I wish it had some of the features amaroK has built in.

VLC works well for playing both audio and video clips. Includes playlist support.

Voted Audacious. Works for me with the least fuss and recognizes song titles from my obscure and my non-English language CDs.

Also good: Clementine for when I want a few more features explicitly displayed, VLC when I want both video and music capabilities handy in one application.

All but xmms are too much resource unfriendly. As xmms is unmaintained, I wrote a slimmed-down version of it in perl using GStreamer libraries years ago stat I still use every day. I don't need no frigging moving bars or fetching images from websites. The info of what is playing is more than enough. And skins are so overrated. I chose xmms

The same. Simple and effective.

For me it's also Audacious. It's got everything an audio player needs.

Voted for mpd, again. It's been working consistantly and flexibly using a fair few front-end controllers for years now. It can play and broadcast internet streams and works on any machine I've tried it on.
A bugger to set up but a pleasure to use.
