Hey I found that if you select all of your music on your iPhone when it's plugged in and choose to create it as a playlist, it automatically updates your phone and the songs you deleted. Then you can just go back or on your iPhone choose to delete the playlist you just created.

Since this thread seemed dead-on to my problem I thought I'd post here.
When I turn off "Show All Music" my problem goes away. If I only delete the songs, on my iPhone, I get the download cloud symbol for each song I delete. My question is how did these songs get in the cloud in the first place?

You bought them from iTunes, thus they are in the cloud and available to re-download.

Delete the songs from the all songs lists which you will find in the bottom next to more
Scroll down instead of searching and then swipe from right to left to delete the song
Sometimes songs are automatically synced back when connected to the laptop
To prevent this, connect phone to laptop and then delete songs
This will solve your problems

None of the above worked for my son's iphone, but the following taken from a news.com.au article did:
Settings > Music > and toggle the Show All Music button to off.
This will prevent any music that has been downloaded or that is being stored in the cloud from being displayed your phone.
Then plug in your phone to your iTunes and sync only the music you want to your phone. Sometimes it’s better if you delete all music from your phone and start again but that’s a personal decision.
Important: It is essential that you upgrade your iTunes to the latest version (11.1) or iOS 7 will not function properly.
To check for an update on a Mac open iTunes, click the Apple logo in the top left corner of the screen and select “Check for updates,” download the update and sync your device to your iTunes.

I did the following and posted it on another thread here at Apple. Just trying to help others out.
- iPhone 5c
- iOS 7.1
- Go to Settings > General > Usage > Music (loading) > Edit > Tap the red Negative Circle > and tap Delete.
- Go to Settings > Music > turn off Show All Music
- Go to your Music App, all music should be gone
- Plug iPhone back into PC and open iTunes
- Go to your iPhone in iTunes and click on the Music tab
- Check Sync Music and choose an option below it. I selected Entire Music Library
- Re-Sync iPhone
All duplicate music should now be gone.
