Music library playing a song wrong to iCloud

I just noticed a strange bug in my iTunes music library to play the wrong version of one of my songs.  Here's the scoop:

I have the album of Pink Floyd The Wall on my main library that is local to one of my computers.  Because I have iCloud music enabled, which allows my other computers listen to the songs I have in my main library, I am able to listen to The Wall of another Mac.  However, it's playing the wrong version of "Another Brick In The Wall (part 2)," which, on my computer which is streaming the track plays the live version of the track (which I believe is from the album Pulse, which is a horrible post-Roger Waters album).

In my main music library, which has the original album that I've scanned there nearly 20 years, the length of the track is 04:01. However, when I listen to the song with another Mac, who plays bad live version, the length of the track is 07:07.  Now, if the runtime is the same, then I would chalk up a simple glitch where the Apple servers has confused, in the course of the same artist, even followed by name, same DURATION... but since it's a completely different album and different runtime... real head scratcher for me there.

Just wanted to put this out there and see if anyone else has had this happens, and if there is some sort of fix.  I have not spent a lot of time to my music from my other computers, so I don't know if it's just an a stop or a bug that assail you my library continuously.



This a fairly common problem with Apple's music. Read this ic-fingerprints /

  • music 9 plays the song wrong iOS app

    I have an iPhone 6 s, version 64 GB running iOS 9.3.1.

    I found that very often when I play music in the music app, I'll try to select a song and instead to play this song, it will play the song under him, or the song two or three under where I selected. This isn't a question "you must have shuffle." It seems that other people have had this problem since iOS 7. Music force the application to quit and restart the phone seems to solve the problem for a while until he back randomly.

    There is nothing wrong with my touch screen, it works perfectly fine. The songs are there, I can play if I choose a song, two or three preceding that I want to play or if I ask Siri to play the song. At first, I thought maybe my phone somehow lose data from the music and the song to jump because he couldn't play, but this is obviously not the issue. If people had problems of this kind in the iOS 7 I would have thought by iOS 9.3.1 it was something that's been fixed now.

    Anyone else have any ideas? It's really annoying.

    After some research, I found that somehow the shuffle function has something to do with this problem because it disappears if I turn off shuffle. However, while shuffle is on and sat for a while, he will refuse to play the song as I type, rather play another song usually songs, that I hit the underside of the. If I disable the shuffle, the problem goes away for a while, even though I turn on shuffle immediately. But eventually the phone will not play the song that I select. It's the strangest thing I've seen my phone so far.

  • Why Windows Media Player plays the song wrong when I click it in a playlist?

    I did a huge selection automatically (with 145 songs) with five-star is Windows Media Player 12 in Windows 7 on my Dell XPS L702X.

    So, let's say that I want to hear "Everybody Hurts [edit]" r.e.m. I click on n, it starts WMP play "Slips through my fingers" by Agneta Fältskog!
    He plays another song which is 24 positions above!
    At first, it used only for touch me when I was sorting the songs in the playlist by Genre, Album, year, etc... But now, even with the contributing artist, he played another song!
    The only way for her to play the song I want is with some navigation arrow keys or when I clicked on the playlist and I'd get a unsorted list. With the unsorted list, I find the song.
    It's a difficult problem, but I have a temporary solution. But please try to find an answer!
    EDIT: now at random. Unsorted perspective will give me wrong songs and the artist's view contributing sort will give me good music! What a mix! Say that it is a "re - Mix"!

  • Why are my ineligible tracks for iCloud music library?

    Recently, I turned on the Apple music on my Mac and turned on iCloud music library. Most of my songs have been downloaded without problem, but there were some, including some of my favorite pieces, which is apparently not eligible for the cloud.

    These songs are songs that I bought years ago while they are protected AAC audio files and I bought the on another Apple ID as I used to share one with a family member before me to be my own. However, my laptop is allowed to play the songs of this ID, and there were many other tracks protected in my library bought with other Apple ID, that have been matched / downloaded without any problem.

    In addition, all tracks are 128 Kbps, so that they are in the range of quality to download. None is more than 200 MB, so the file size is not the issue.

    All tracks are still currently available on the iTunes Store and Apple's music catalog.

    Is there another reason they might be inadmissible? And, if so, is there a way to solve this problem and download them to my music library to iCloud?


    I own a small number of titles that I could not be upgraded. While some of the songs where still in the iTunes Store, they have been republished on / remastered versions of the same album.

    I suggest you burn these tracks on an audio cd and rerip them. You can get a match.


  • Question about the music library to iCloud (music Apple) and iTunes on mac

    Download I m just of my iTunes in the music library of iCloud library. Since I was afraid that my library of 40000 + titles could get corrupted or metadata could be changed by apple, I downloaded the files from a 'second' machine (macbook) - just to be on the safe side and keep my iTunes library local main on my iMac intact by iCloud (for the moment).

    Now everything seems fine with iCloud music library, but after all the titles/songs are in iCloud now, what happens if I disable the library iCloud music on the 'second' machine and Activate the library iCloud music on my main machine (iMac), which has the same local as my second machine iTunes library? (= the same local iTunes library, which has been already downloaded?)

    ICloud/iTunes will recognize that all songs/files are already uploaded to the music library iCloud and doe 'nothing', or download will process all over again and will lead to 'double' all the files/songs in iCloud?

    The same question arises if we restore iTunes library local on a mac from a backup + switches on iCloud music library a second time... will be iTunes + icloud music library download all the files again or not?

    Unless something is wrong, it should recognize and not duplicate.

  • iCloud music library does not work on my new iPhone


    iCloud music library has worked between my Mac, iPhone 6 and iPad Pro. However, it does not work on my new iPhone 7.

    When I try turn it off and on again, I do not get the merge or replace guest library that every site seems to say that I see.

  • Music library Apple messed up my songs

    Hello. I hardly ever have anything to complain about Apple's music, but today I noticed something really weird. I got about 60 GB of songs in my computer when I signed firstly for the Apple's music and has my synchronized library. Well, it happened last year and since then I had no problems with it.

    But I just did a clean install of El Capitan on my macbook and so lost all the file of songs I had stored. 'No problem', I have thought, "they are still all in my music library apple, as long as I have access to the internet, I can listen to all". It so happened I had some songs very special and unique, like an instrumental version of sadness Summertime Lana Del Rey. Boy was I surprised when I tried to play and played the version of iTunes is in fact identical to the album version.

    So I ask you, Apple: where is my instrumental song by Lana Del Rey? If it's in the cloud, how can I listen to it?

    So I went and looked for other similar songs, and they are all screwed up. My set of The Killers live album is not powered, each song is the version of the album, even with the (live) song in it.

    I can't help thinking that apple music spread a kind of false when propaganda advertising that we were able to listen to our songs from any device. It turns out that this is not always the case. I ask you once again: where are my files of original songs? How can I listen to them?

    I expect an honest answer.
