Thanks for advice.
I have been using an app called Cloud Music Importer by Sapien Mobile. It allows you to take all, or any of your Google Play music, and move it to a regular location with regular file names so you can use it with whatever music app you want. I started using it way back with my Evo 3D. Back then, the program worked, but wasn't exactly user friendly, or fast. Since then, they have automated a ton of the process, and made it more configurable. Now it automatrically syncs any of my Google Play Music if I mark it to make available offline in Google Music. I don't remember how much the app is no. Back when I bought it, it was like $1.29. I know the price has gone up since then, but it is so worth it.

There may be other apps to do the same thing, but since this one does everything I want, I never searched further. Of course, you can do the same thing the app does, without the app, it is just more of a pain. You have to make the songs available offline, then use a file manager to browse out to the temporary location it puts them in, copy the MP3s off somewhere else, then play them to find out what each one is, so you can rename it from the random number filename it has. Or at least, that is how the process USED to work. Again, since I have had this program for so long, I haven't had to look into the process further.

Or maybe I am misunderstanding your question. That is always a possibility with me.
