    The song needs album art associated with it to show up. All music down loaded from XBOX music will show.

    So this is a a tad off topic, but I didn't want to start a brand new thread, seeing as my question is related.

    So is anyone else bothered by the fact that the live tile for Xbox music is only active while music is playing? Who else misses how WP7 kept the artist you previously listened to posted to the live tile? It was so much more personal. Now there's just a green block with headphones :(

    Yeah I miss the way WP7 does thatand you know what, Xbox music on Windows 8 also gives you the headphones with an orange block. Why did they do away with Zune characteristics??
