    I got all my songs from ITunes on my windows phone through the music app on window 8. I decided I wanted to delete all those songs since I have my iphone 4 still as an ipod. Deleted about 2000 songs but about 40 of them remain on my phone. When I go to the songs in the music hub and long press the song I want to delete, there is not an option to delete. Only add to now playing, play smart dj mix, and download. I also tried the select feature in songs, selected these songs and press the recycle bin button, and it said it was loading and when it was done and I looked, the songs are still there! How do I get rid of songs that cannot seem to be deleted? Whoa now I just checked and many of the 2000 or so songs are back on my phone! I just want a clean phone again!

    I had this issue but going onto the phone and individually deleting the songs for rid of them for good. Not sure why they've all reappeared but the only thing i can suggest could be a program like unlocker on your pc, that could help let you delete the songs?
    Just an idea :)

    Set Xbox Cloud to Off.
    Plug your phone to your computer, open its music storage via File Explorer and delete everything from there, not your phone.
