I use Clementine all the time. Actually Nick, I think it was you that did recommend it to me in this thread. Amarok was just too bloated and cluttered for my uses.
If anyone is using Clementine, this is a nice addition they've recently made...Clementine Remote for Android.
If using an Ubuntu based Linux, this currently has Clementine 1.1 in the repos. To use the Android remote app you'll have to update to 1.2, which is here.
