    Ok, can someone explain this to me?

    I have an iPhone 5S. Sync'd to iTunes. iTunes Match and Show All Music in the Music settings turned off. Show all Music, iTunes Match, and Music auto download turned off in the iTunes and App Store settings.

    I went into iTunes and unchecked sync music, thereby deleting all music from the device.

    Yet when I go into the Music app I still have 7 songs there. They are in my iTunes, but they are my wife's songs, I hate them and don't want them on my phone.

    It's not a huge deal, but it's irritating to me because I don't understand why they are on there after I specifically said I don't want music on there. (I'm going to eventually put my music back ON, I just temporarily deleted all music to try to troubleshoot why these random songs were popping up when I shuffled all songs on my iPhone in my car - I listen to electronic dance music like progressive and dubstep, and then some random stupid song from Tinie Tempah pops up in my playlist).

    Do they keep coming back on the phone if you swipe left and delete them in the music app?

    They won't let me delete. When I add music BACK from iTunes, I can swipe to delete THOSE, but not the seven that seem to be on there perm. :/

    what does it do if you try? and do they show up in the "on the phone" tab in iTunes?

    Nothing - if I swipe it, it does nothing like it's not even an option. I tried like 100 times, and usually I just end up starting the song by accident. Whereas I can delete the other ones that I have purposely sync'd.

    No it doesn't show up on "on this phone" tab.

    ----------

    I should mention if I uncheck ALL music from my phone and unsync it all, "on this phone" says no music on my phone, but the seven dumb songs remain and I can't swipe to delete.
