Clementine was designed with music lovers in mind.
Unlike iTunes where adding tracks and managing playlists is quite tiresome, Clementine is a pleasure to use.
One of the features that I like the most is that I can keep all of my music (as well as movies and documents) on a central file server running Linux and accessible through Samba.
iTunes just doesn’t have the capability to deal with such a scenario. With Clementine I can browse the Samba server (or any other location such as an external drive) and add those music folders to the library. Clementine will scan all files and start playing directly from the server without having to copy that 500GB of data on to the 256GB SSD of my MacBook.
That’s not all, Clementine has many more features up its sleeve. If you want to do Karaoke, there is a tab called 'Song Info' on the side panel and it pulls the lyrics of the current track from the web (Last.fm)!
Another tab called 'Artist Info' opens the Wikipedia page of the article within Clementine so you can read about the artist while you enjoy their work.
Clementine has great support for podcasts, and it also supports tons of cloud services so you can connect Clementine to Dropbox or Google Drive and start playing music stored on these clouds.
Do you still want to go back to iTunes? I thought not.
