You're dealing with a screen 10 feet away from you so it's much less  
usable area than a computer display. Taking queues from portable media  
players is probably the best way to achieve a usable music player UI.  
I was just curious to see what you thought a great interface was so I  
could take a look and incorporate some of those ideas into a theme.
