The first thing that comes to mind with these media players is that a 3rd party wants access to my phone logs, then maybe address book.....just to start sending spam to my contacts.
Welcome to the forums,
Your "Big Brother is watching me" theory is completely wrong here. The reason these apps need access to "Phone Logs" (which really means the Phone app)is so that it can tie into the phone app so that when an incoming call comes in the music will stop and then start again after the call is finished. If you don't allow access usually the apps won't work. Google Maps does the same thing with "Phone Logs." There is a feature where you search for a business and then you can call directly from the Google Maps application. If you deny these connections you will cause errors in the programs and can sometimes lock your device up. If you installed the application and are aware of what it is then it's ok to allow connections to everything the program asks.
