    I'm sure it's just that I'm an Android idiot but I've tried and tried and can not figure out how to delete songs that I've downloaded to Google music. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Yeah I learned this the hard way too...

    Go to music.google.com on your PC. Log in and all your music will be there. Then, select the song you want gone and just hit the "delete" key on your keyboard.

    To get rid of an entire album, delete all the songs and the album disappears.

    :)

    They are synced from your play.google.com account, so you have to delete them from there first. I find it's easiest to just highlight the song you want, and press the DEL key. Poof, song is gone and a few minutes later, it will be gone off your phone as well.

    I don't think it take even that long. I was editing some of the ID data on Play Music, and it pretty much updated on my phone in almost real time. Freaky.

    I've deleted the songs from music.google from my laptop, but how do you get the songs off of your phone?

    If your phone is set to sync google music, then it will delete them with the next sync..... assuming you didn't physically copy tracks to your phone. If you did, you'll have to manually delete those.
