Why can't Microsoft just make Zune work for WP8?

I just got the Nokia Lumia 920 today and I wanted to use put music on my phone.
I tried Windows Media Player, but it'is terrible at syncing at album art and album names correctly. The Windows Phone 8 app for the Windows 7 doesn't do any better.
Zune did the job, and that app right now isn't doing the job right.
Who else wants Zune back or another software that is similar to iTunes and Zune?
If they're not going to change it or improve, I'll stick to my old phone for music (HTC Surround).

I don't care if they bring Zune back or not. They just need to make the new software work as Zune did.
Keep in mind it's technically in Beta still so, it WILL get better.

I'm using the Zune desktop app until they fix the Xbox music app. That Xbox app fails at everything.

The Zune app is probably one of the most effective pieces of software I've ever used.
