Why is this so difficult? It seems as though I have to delete all my songs from my iPhone then reload them minus the unwanted song?!
Someone tell Apple to give us an edit button and a swipe (like message or notes or email) I think I’m gonna go Samsung sooner then later.

There is no delete button when "swiping to the left"; in fact nothing happens when "swiping to the left". So why do all the instructions say to do this. I want to free up memory on my phone without losing the songs in my itunes on my computer and my ipod. I have de-synched the phone from itunes on the computer. Now, how do I get them OFF MY PHONE without removing them from my itunes library.
