I recently upgraded to the new 7.0 iPhone/iTunes update and am aggravated because my purchased music is included in playlists when I do not choose them. I have a lot of music that I have purchased just to complete a collection. I want only to play what I choose. How do you get them off the playlist and keep them from playing?


Don't be aggravated, take a trip into settings where you can quickly and easily turn this off.

Settings > Music > Show All Music: ON / OFF

This settings toggles between:

All music that has been downloaded or that is stored in iCloud will be shown


Only music that has been downloaded to this device will be shown.

Now you're sorted, go for a run and wind down ;)

It's under the "view" menu in settings that provides a choice between "all music" and "only downloaded music"
