When you see the song with the cloud icon, that means that the song is not on the phone, but can be downloaded from iCloud. If you would like to permantly delete the song from iCloud, you may find the following article helpful:

Thanks for the link.
I deleted the tunes from my computer and synced with my phone. The tunes still remain on my phone under the same conditions. I did enable iCloud on my phone and downloaded the tunes. Once downloaded, I swiped each tune to the left, bringing up the delete option. When I tried to delete a tune, it would not delete. Instead, the tune remained there and the cloud symbol reappeared. I'll work on this some more

I agree that this issue needs to be fixed! I have this same issue and have done all of the above with no luck. I have spent the better part of 3 hours messing with this to no avail.
And to Brendan....We should not have to pay for a subscription just to remove a song from our playlist!! The DELETE SHOULD WORK! But alas, it doesn't. As stated in another post, the song just magically reappears.
I sign a new contract in 25 days, and this is just another reason why I am seriously contemplating switching to an Android.

The issue here is not to disable all tunes, but to get rid of selected tunes on the iPhone.
I have been trying permutations of the procedure that described in my original post. The problem remains. I have done a workaround: assigned the tunes that I do not want to see on my iPhone to a genera of music that I never listen to. Now I can simply avoid opening this on my iPhone. I am not at the limit of my iPhone storage space, so I can live with this solution.
Nevertheless, this iTunes problem remains an issue. I look forward to a software patch that will correct it.

If you read carefully and go to the actual page under settings>Music> show all music
You can see it's written to show music from iCloud and the music that has been downloaded.
So if you disable it, it won't disable all your songs, only those in your iCloud's.
