Trying to download The Jam's "Precious" but it keeps coming up as corrupted? I deleted it from the cloud and uploaded again, and still it comes back as corrupted when downloaded?

I'm trying to get the new Kenny Chesney song, same prob.
Best I've done is go to 4G on my iPhone, no WiFi, bought it there (it worked) but now I can't get it to transfer over to my MacBook. So annoying, there are actually a lot of questions about it in the Help section of iTunes. No real answers though. A few people have had luck using different WiFi set ups other than their own, like finding a hot spot.

In my experience with "corrupted Match songs" is to just wait. It always works within the next day or so. I chalk it up to Apple's servers having issues.

i have had some songs that matched, and when i go to download them. they download fine, but don't play. I'm guessing its corrupted.

i just remove the song from iTunes not iCloud, and download again
sometimes i have to do it more then once.

iTunes match is great sometimes, still has a few issues
