cplay!!! It's in ports under
audio/cplay. cplay is just a, python based, curses front-end so you
will also need to install a back-end (ogg123, splay, mpg123, mpg321,
madplay, mikmod, xmp, or sox), I recommend splay.

I've attached the default .cplayrc config file, copy it to your home
directory if the port doesn't automatically install it (I don't think
it does)... and read the man page for cplay.
