If you've ever been a KDE user, you are probably familiar with the Amarok music player. Perhaps you prefer GNOME over KDE but you really prefer Amarok over the music players normally offered in GNOME. You could always go ahead and install Amarok, but it brings along a ton of KDE dependencies. Good news! There is a GTK+ alternative. 

The Clementine music player is a GTK+ based music player and according to the official website, it's "inspired by Amarok 1.4". Clementine is a cross platform music player that is available for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.
