Stream Music From PC To Android Phone?

I know this is kind of not a PC question but maybe someone can help me.
I want to try to stream my Music on PC to my Samsung Galaxy Gio which uses Android Marketplace over my wifi home connection.

Kind of like how you use for Windows Media Center/Music with Xbox 360.
i tried some programs and all requires sign up and hosting a server or something and i just want to stream it.
Any ideas?

I use Airfoil to stream audio from my PC to my iPhone. Airfoil runs on your computer (Mac or PC) and is able to stream any audio source from the computer running it to any device running Airfoil Speakers.

I'm using Airfoil to stream audio from my Windows 7 PC to my living room stereo via AirPort Express and then to my Linux machine in the kitchen via Airfoil Speakers for Linux. I had to add some .dll files to make Airfoil Speakers for Linux to work but, there was easily available info on line on how to.

I couldn't find any info about weather Airfoil Speakers has a Version for your Android phone. However, I did find something called DoubleTwist for Android that allows AirPlay on Android devices. Might be worth looking into.
