As chas_m asked, are you trying this in iTunes/Devices/.....iPhone in which case you can't do it? You can only un-sync by unchecking the Artist, Playlist, Album etc in the Sync Music pane, which is a summarised checklist of your Music Library.

If you want to delete anything you need to be in iTunes/Library/Music, where you can right click/delete, but if all you want to do is take the title off your phone then it's overkill.

Actually you can now delete songs directly from the phone.

From either the songs, albums or artists collections, when you see a song you want to delete from the phone, swipe your finger over it left to right. That will bring up a delete option.

Also if you're in iTunes, you can simply highlight the songs you want to remove and press the "delete" key on your keyboard.

16GB iPhone 5, 64GB Wi-Fi only iPad 1st Gen.

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

What problem? This was explained by chas. Swipe right to left. If you are talking songs with a cloud by them they aren't really on the phone so you can't swipe to get rid of them. (i am just grasping at straws here because i do not know what your problem is.)

Explain what your problem is a little.
