How can I make something play an mp3 in a loop?

I want to make something that can play an mp3 file from maybe an SD or MicroSD card. It needs to be small, and I would like to be able to hard wire it to a speaker. I'm making a music box, and I want it to fit in. I do not want to use Arduino and I want it to be as simple as possible. It only needs to play the file in a loop.

How would a recording module help? I would like it to have an SD or MicroSD so I can switch sounds every once in a while.

It's simple and it's small. You can always record over previous bit of audio. Anything else will cost more or need to be controlled by a micro controller like an Arduino and can get more complicated.

This would suit your needs nicely if you could get over using a micro controller with it.
