You need to distinguish between songs you bought from iTunes and songs you ripped from CDs which are not available in the Store.
When you purchase a song in the Store, you are allowed to re-download it to your other devices. There's no need to upload it - you would simply be duplicating material which is already online, and if everyone did that it would waste a huge amount of storage. If you have a song, taken from a CD, which isn't in the Store, then obviously it needs to be uploaded before you can download it on other devices.
