Advice on how to manage music collection

I'm looking for suggestions on how to manage my music collection. I'm open to anything, the last thing I used was Zune, but figure I should move on since it isn't likely to stay around forever.

Use Xbox music............hahaha jk...

No but anyway, I use Mediamonkey, WMP, and Zune (still).

...the Zune software will still be around most likely since there are people with WP7 and Zune players out there. They are just crippling the marketplace features on Zune because they want you to move over to Xbox music and/or buy music from there.

Honestly, IMO you should just stick with Zune for the time being. -maybe by the time Windows 8.1 comes out, Xbox music won't suck so bad.

Anywho, just my two cents. I'm sure others will chime in and give a hella lot more advice than myself.
