    After updating to iOS 8 about half my music library now has song duplicates. The songs are in grey font. When you press on them the song doesn't play but a random one starts playing instead. If you press the stop button, nothing happens either.
    There is a screenshot in the attachment.

    Also, every time I plug in my iphone to my mac, it syncs about 250 songs, which are ALREADY on my iphone, what's up with that?

    Anyone have any idea how to remove these useless duplicates and what's up with all the syncing?

    Me too

    I'm experiencing the same issue throughout my iPhone 5s music library. Unfortunately I did not notice until I left on a business trip so I haven't had a chance to re-sync the phone and see what happens. It is very bizarre.

    I also tried re-syncing: erasing all music and syncing again. The songs, which were duplicated have stayed in the Music library as the grey duplicates even though they were not selected to sync into my iPhone...

    Found it: you need to turn off the function, which shows music stored on iCloud. Settings ->Music ->Show album music.

    this isn't a great solution as it turns off any songs that have in the cloud that aren't duplicates

    Well it works for me as I have no songs stored on my cloud. But if anyone comes up with a better solution, let us know :)

    The grey is because the show all music setting is enabled I think.
