You can go with pygame, but it comes with a bit of overhead for simply 
playing MP3 audio. I'll also warn you that the decoder it depends on 
isn't spectacular, it won't parse files with ID3V2 tags might be your 
biggest problem.

     import pygame
     pygame.mixer.init()"music.mp3") #loop infinitely

     #music will play indefinitely until program ends
