I yearn for the good old days when WinAmp was the only game in town. Unfortunately, WinAmp has had to add feature to keep up with the competition.

I want a very simple player for Windows where I can

  • add/drag files
  • play them randomly AND
  • have a hotkey to skip to the next (random) track, even with the player in the background



  • Simple interface, just add and play
  • Play random tracks (random order vs. shuffle order, FAQ here)
  • Global keyboard shortcuts (documentation here)
