"Add to My Music" not adding all music?

I was going through an adding a bunch of albums to My Music (iTunes, not iOS) and making them playable offline. I noticed that not all of the tracks were downloading - in fact, a lot of singles haven't been downloading. Anytime I click "add", it just doesn't do anything.

Bug, or something contractual?

I am actually having the same problem, but adding it to a playlist. It looks like it adds but then I go and look and it's not added (but some are).

What's worse is the play list I started creating on my iPhone was wiped out and updated from the one on my Mac that had only 2 songs on it...Kind of annoying but to be honest, it's launch day so I'm assuming it's just bugs. I've had my fair share of issues with Spotify in the past. Sure, it's solid right this second, but I remember several bugs where it would take about 20 minutes to sync 1 song and the speed of your internet connection didn't matter.

Check to make sure you have your phone set to show songs that aren't downloaded to it. "Add to My Music" and "Add to Playlist" won't show if you don't have them downloaded but have the setting to only show songs that are downloaded.

Where do you see this at?

If i press the "All Playlists" it has the "Show music available offline" turned off.
