    Default Ultimate Collection on Spotify - All songs not available?

    Whenever I go on spotify (US) I can't seem to play the following songs:

    - Ease on Down the Road
    - You Can't Win
    - Sunset Driver
    - PYT Demo
    - Scared of the Moon
    - We Are the World
    - We Are Here to Change the World
    - Cheater
    - Dangerous (Early version)
    - Monkey Business
    - Someone Put Your Hand Out
    - Who is It (MIX)
    - You Are Not Alone (Why?)
    - On The Line
    - Fall Again
    - In the Back
    - Beautiful Girl
    - We've Had Enough

    Essentially I can't play songs not released on albums. Why?

    Are you a premium user or free user? - Don't know if that could mean something?
    https://www.youtube.com/user/Ahess/videos - me dancing MJ - many years ago.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks

    Ease On Down The Road is the only track unavailable in Ireland anyway, and I'm Premium.

    Might have something to do with Diana's "Diana sings songs from the Wiz" album that was released not too long ago?

    Nope. Songs that are Premium Only are very, very rare (hell idek if they still exist) and are distinctly marked as such.

    Ya, I don't have premium and I doubt that would be the reason I can't add them on my playlist or anything.

    I have Premium and only Ease on Down The Road isn't available (but it is available if you look up The Wiz Soundtrack).

    This is why I'll never rely on a streaming service. They can pull any track at any time.
    I'll continue to own my own music thanks.

    They didn't pull anything. Only some songs aren't available to free users, only Premium.

    I mean, I have the Ultimate Collection but sometimes I want to just shuffle my spotify in the car and I need songs like We've Had Enough or On the Line.

    I hate streaming. I prefer to just buy my music. That's more convenient for me.

    That's why you use a streaming service that allows you to upload your own music, such as Google Play or Apple Music

    See Sony/The Estate could take down the entire MJ catalogue off streaming services tomorrow but it wouldn't affect me since I can just upload my own copies up there, plus I get the benefit of being able to stream 40,000,000+ songs

    I actually just checked this and you're right. As a free member, the demos do not play for me and are greyed out, but they show up fine and play for my brother who has a Premium account. This is really odd and inconsistent as Premium Songs are meant to be labeled as such:

    I buy my music too - in iTunes.

    But I have made some albums myself - with songs ripped from youtube and albums I already owned I just copied to iTunes.

    BUT I have a HUGE problem now...

    My PC just died a few days ago - no warning, so no back-up... - On my iPhone I still have ALL the songs, albums etc. also them I made myself with People of The World etc. etc. and albums I ripped from my CD.

    Does anyone know how I copy albums from my iPhone to iTunes?? - no need for anti-apple comments, just some help please.

    I would be so very happy to get all my albums and songs on my computer again - cause all my BOSE soundtouch systems can only play at once from my computer - so I really need all the music to get back on my computer...

    Anyone who knows how I do it?

    You both should really try streaming!
    I've bought/buy Michael's music, but I also stream him a lot (more then I listen to the bought songs).
    The streaming also helps his album sales because now with the new rules 1500 streams equals one album sale.
