I have a couple of recommendations here. First there may be 3rd party plug ins causing the issue. To test for them use this article.
iTunes: Troubleshooting issues with third-party iTunes plug-ins
Or the library may need to be recreated, with this article.

I have the same on my iPhone 4s and with my iPad Air (with iOS 7.1, but it has been doing it before too).
It does it even with music purchased through iTunes or songs stored on iCloud through iTunes Match.
This has been annoying me no end. I love my iOS devices, but if this doesn't get fixed I'll have to get an Android phone next.

Browsing around this site a bit it seems this problem has existed since 2008 in one form of another. So that does not bode well for a fix any time soon.
Sooo... I looked around a little for an iTunes alternative. And found Amazon Cloud Player, which plays all my music just fine. Apple's biggest rival in the online music space saves the day. Apple should be ashamed.

Thank you. Option two finally solved what has been over a year long problem with iTunes!

I was with you. Had been using Ecoute for over a year. Finally found the answer! Try recreating your Library recommended by Sterling above.
