Why not just system call the music and thread it so that it'll play while the program runs on a superset thread? This could potentially cause problems when one thread crashes

I know ruby has no native sound support and at least from what I've read if you want music in your app you have to do something along the lines of a system call opening the file up in mplayer or mpg123 from within the app. my question is, what would be good lightweight easily re distributable player to embed in my app? I guess i should also mention the purpose of the app. I'm just trying to create a simple mp3 player with basic controls (back forward play pause etc). eventually once I got the basics working, I want to add support for lyrics search and stuff like that (that's my main goal but i need basic controls first)
