I've installed iTunes on PC and have registered with Apple Music. I've started playing an album. But most of the songs are just not being played. Only one-three songs for an album are playable. What kind of issue with iTunes/Apple/Apple Music is that? How to force iTunes to play them?

Here are screenshots of the difference.

  • A song that is playable has a grey color slider:

  • Songs that iTunes doesn't play have blue color slider. iTunes just freezes on those songs and never goes to the the next song in an album:

And no any hints except these about why Apple Music doesn't play songs.

Why can't some songs be played with Music?

  • This happens a lot for me. If it's an option on PC Apple Music, allow a larger playback cache so it can store more music locally. Also try downloading songs for offline listening.

  • The blue line (@Green's second picture) happens to me when I listen to songs 'online'. When I download them offline, that problem doesn't happen to me. Have you tried downloading the album offline?
