Looking for a music player+organizer for playing entire folders and making playlists

I did not believe I would ever say this, but I'm looking for a music player that has the functionality of Windows Media Player. That is, a player that would search for music all over the file system (like Picasa does for images), and would work conveniently with folder structure - so I would drag an entire folder into the window and the player would create a playlist of it.
I have Ubuntu, if it matters.

Thanks ahead for your help!

I would recommend Amarok.
Should be installable via your package manager.
