    I just noticed that songs that are on random playlists get deleted when you remove the album, where that song is included, from your library, which really sucks...

    I have a playlist (>500 songs) where I add all new songs that I like from random artists and bands. Sometimes I wanna check out a record of some of those bands and I add it to my library. But then, when I don't like it and delete it, it also removes the song from my playlist. WTF?!

    I mean yes, Spotify has way more experience, since they've been doing this for so many years, but it seems like Apple cannot even get the basics right. You still cannot change the order of the songs in playlist on iOS, I mean how hard can that be?
    I only switched to Apple Music because I'm a huge Apple Fanboy and like their ecosystem, but I hope they get Apple Music right soon. It's just terrible compared to Spotify...

    That's an issue that really pisses me off.

    Agree, I can put in Alpha order my songs in iTunes on my MacBook but not in iOS. Got to manually do it--Sucks--

    I wondered the same why songs disappear. What is even more annoying is when albums disappear and no they were not pulled. The other day I had to add two albums back again and they were even favorites.

    It's extremely annoying that playlists get deleted when an album is removed from the library. They should be independent things. We can send to Apple a feedback with that issue. Maybe they'll hear us.

    I'm doing that right now and I suggest that you do too.

    And I will also send feedback to Santa Claus and hope to get a reply. What a joke. I hate and never leave feedback to any company a waste of time as they always do the exact opposite.

    Yeah, I don't think they even read these. I sent them a feedback regarding changing the order of songs in playlists months ago. Never heard back and the only thing we got was changing the order of your playlists but not the songs in it...

    I agree. Years ago I use to always leave feedback but it was a waste of time and this is any company. Common 100% repeatable bugs and annoyances they ignore instead fixing some unknown problem or even doing the exact opposite.

    Play Music removed the ability to choose a track not interested and you still can't sort by Artist, Title. Apple Music still has no web player just the POS iTunes player. Netflix ignores shrinking of the credits and actually also remove the not interested feature but added useless autoplay junk. So I don't bother.

    The higher ups already decided what they want so feedback is ignored just like those suggestion boxes in stores and restaurants just collecting dust.

    You're probably right. But I think it's better than nothing.
