    Quick question. Why aren't some songs available to listen to/buy?

    I saw through my xbox that Zune has two songs I wanted that i-tunes does not.

    Keep Hope Alive - Tamia from the Associate Soundtrack
    Simon Says - Drain STH

    But neither are availble. :mad::(

    Yeah I've realized this and it's been that way ever since Zune debuted back in 2006. Sometimes it's because of an album-only deal with the record label, other times it's just because the song is listed but not actually available for download. I assume this is just so you know the artist's discography.

    Unless you mean with Zune Pass? Then that's a whole other story.

    Even with Zune Pass, some songs/albums are not available. I think it has something to do with rights from record labels/artists.

    Precisely what I meant. If songs aren't available for Zune Pass, that's a record label issue. Like, perfect example, no P!nk songs are available and never have been for Zune Pass.

    Overall, I've been pleased with the selection.

    I specifically switched from iTunes to Zune, because of Zune Pass. I love the idea of a monthly subcription with unlimited access to millions of songs. I only wish they had tiered pricing like $10 for unlimited and 5 free keep or $5 for unlimited and 0 free keep. I don't really care for keeping songs. When it comes time to choose my monthly 10 free keeps, I download whatever is recommended for me.
