this sounds like the dumbest question, but I can't figure out how to get rid of a certain song on my phone.  It pops up on shuffle all the time, and I know I must have added it to a playlist at some point. 


But I have a bunch of long playlists and I cannot find it in any of them! 


How can I tell which playlist a certain song is on?

    Find the song on iTunes on your computer.  Control click it.  Choose "Show in Playlist".  It will show you all the playlists the song is in.

    By the way, I see a display like your screenshot shows when I have a song not in a playlist.  If instead I control click a song in at least one playlist, the "Show in Playlist" row displays right under the "Add to Playlist" row that you show.
