Forgive me if I'm in the wrong section, I'm new here.

I got the 3 month free trial for Apple Music about a month ago so I downloaded music into my library. I tried making a playlist but I can't organize the tracks in the order I want (it always reverts to its original position after I move them around and hit 'done'). I read that if you add the tracks into the playlist in the order you want (which means you have to plan that out before adding them) then it should be ok, however when I add the 15 songs I want then press 'done' it jumbles them into some weird order that is not the order in which I added them (come to think of it it's not in alphabetical order or by year of release or whatever). I even tried it w music I actually purchased and the same thing happens. Is there any solution to this or am I **** out of luck ?

I'm using an iphone 7 w ios 10.3.2 installed btw, if that means anything.

Why not just use the mix function,to get a random mix?

A local library user here. No issue of reordering the playlist.
Guess there is sth from Apple Music itself preventing your action.
I don’t use Apple Music but surely not the issue of music app.
