No Idea What's Going On
Had my phone since the middle of December and love it.
Last night at dinner, it randomly began playing a song from my library, at full volume. I could not turn it down, and I could not get it to stop, I had to shut it down.
I thought it was a new music player app I installed, so I uninstalled it, then this morning, same thing, same song. When I unlocked the phone, it stopped.
But this absolutely has to stop. Any suggestions?

I'd agree with cryptiq - it must be some type of notification or alarm. If it's happening at the same time, I'd look at the alarm. If it's seemingly random times, I'd look at your notifications. And if you have young children who sometimes play with their own apps on your phone or may have gotten hold of it, then it could be anything. Just keep your media volume muted in the meantime until you get it figured out.

Need to be sure it is 100% random.
Example - could it have been time for a notification from an app?
Does said app use a file from the SD card for it's notification sound?
Has SDcard been unmounted or cycled or scanned by any app since the last time you got a notification from our example app?
What I'm getting at -
It's a known issue that if you move enough data around on your SDcard the locations of the files change enough so that you need to reset app notifications. Let's be honest, Android still has some weird issues and this is one of them.
What if this is similar and it just appears random because it's so far fetched?
