Default HTPC as a jukebox?

I'm having a new years party and want to use the HTPC as a jukebox. I use Mediaportal as a front end but I don't think it has this feature. All I really need above the std. music player is to add the song in queue when it is selected rather than just playing it immediately. My media is all in FLAC's and I'd like the 10f. interface & remote driven, same as the std. music player. Having the song queue list display and maybe a way to edit it (delete unwanted songs) would be nice too.

Any ideas or different software suggestions?

xbmc has the feature to add music to queue. You might have to configure your remote to add an item.

I can't find out to edit the queue but I'm sure there is a way.
