I noticed that a few tracks from an album appear gray.


The tracks are downloaded, I can play them if I double click them explicitly, but they don't play as part of the album. If I click the album's "play" button, they're skipped (1 gets played, then 3, then 4, etc.)

Why is this happening and how can I prevent it?

I saw a similar question, Grayed-out tracks in iTunes library, but that's not what I'm experiencing — for me, the songs do get downloaded and everything appears to be OK, they just get skipped when playing the album.

If you view by Songs rather than Albums, you'll see they are unchecked.

iTunes will always skip unchecked songs, by default.
