    Ok so I'm listening to Apple music on my HomePod and a track comes on that I really like.
    I ask Siri what its called and she replies its called 'Put your Foot down' by The Funk Steelers.
    Because i'm trialling Apple Music and still unsure if I want to continue I thought I'd download the track to my library.
    Now heres the puzzle...
    Having searched on iTunes, Google, Shazam and SoundHound I can't find the track or any reference to either the group or the record.

    If anyone has any ideas as to how I can locate it that would be really appreciated..TIA

    Hi Vlad thanks for the reply and the attached link.
    I've tried looking with the correct spelling but still cant find it on the iTunes store.
    I also tried asking Siri to add to my library which she did but when I went to check the song added was something completely different!...Any thoughts?...Maybe someone could try and see if they similar results?

    That's strange. I can't explain it.
    I've used this feature a couple of times, and it has always worked as expected. I found the correct songs in my library afterwards.

    I can't find this particular track. Neither in Apple Music, nor in the iTunes Store.
    Maybe it's not available in all countries?

    Strange how Siri played it randomly but can't acquire it...most odd

    Maybe there was a glitch with your internet service, and somehow Apple detected your location momentarily as being in the US. The company I work for uses various proxies accross Europe, and some internet sites think I'm in Germany, others think I'm in the UK, etc. Maybe something similar happened to you, which is why Apple Music allowed you to listen to that song. And now that everything's back to normal, it sees you in the UK and won't show it to you anymore.
    It's a bit far fetched, but it's all I can think of.
