This is probably the best alternative for ITunes. The interface of Ecoute looks like an improved version of older versions of iTunes.

Ecoute has some amazing features with the best being its ability to detect and synchronize with your iTunes library. To add onto its list of features, is its sort function. Ecoute allows you to sort your songs according to album, artist, genre and playlist. You will also be glad to know that when a song is playing, there is a small widget that appears on the screen that allows you to access play controls. Those that love to know when a new song is playing are also in luck because Ecoute has the ability to serve it users with notifications each time a new song plays. Its interface is also resizable thus you need not worry about having several windows open at the same time.
