Lightweight mp3 player for OS X.

Well, like the title says, really. Can anyone recommend a lightweight mp3 player for OS X? I'd like something that doesn't take up too much memory or CPU, and doesn't insist on importing the files into its own library (thank you, iTunes, I really needed to have two copies of everything) (thank you, mr_tom!).

I do often use mpg123, but (a) it has trouble with some files, and plays them at double speed, (b) it has to sit in a Terminal window and it can sometimes be hard to remember where I put it (I use multiple Terminal windows, all running screen), (c) it can't cope with some versions of ID3 tagging, and (d) it doesn't let me move back and forth in a playlist or track.

(I did find something called Aqueous, but when I tried to run it it complained about not being able to find Classic, or something like that.)
