Not sure when it started, but I can no longer play any music w/XBMC. The following errors show in the log -
06:56:36 T:3072235424 M:2513936384 ERROR: PAPlayer::Unable to create audio stream
06:56:36 T:3072235424 M:2498781184 ERROR: CreateStream - pcm_open, alsa error: Device or resource busy

I am able to play mp3's outside of XBMC with VLC, Mplayer, etc.
Also, do have sound from movies played in XBMC.

Ugggh nevermind found the problem, there was a bad .asoundrc in my home directory. Angry
Another fix, that worked for me ( provided by Aenima99x ).

Copy your working /etc/asound.conf to /etc/asound.conf.bak
