When song 5 is done playing, it automatically skips over to song 16. The songs in between play just fine when started manually but are not part of the queue when playing the album. Why? What do these grey song titles mean?

I do have iTunes Match, but these songs are all downloaded to my computer.

    It had nothing to do with iCloud or downloads (from that other question), turns out the songs were unchecked. Weird stuff but at least it's solved now :)

Switching to the "songs" view showed the problem: they were unchecked for some reason (no idea why). And because this checkmark wasn't visible in the "artists" view (which I always use) I never noticed this before.

Anyway, selecting all songs -> check selection solved the problem!
