This answer was rated:

I have downloaded a song from the iTunes store and then synced my Macbook and iPhone and the song is in my "Song" list on my iPhone and it shows up in the Playlist I put it in on my Macbook but it doesn't show up in that Playlist on my iPhone.
Hello! My name isXXXXX will work diligently to provide accurate advice and information.

Does the song play correctly on both Macbook and iPhone?

Yes and again, it is in my list of "Songs" on the iPhone but will not populate in the Playlist that I directed it to.

Ok,

Is it only this specific song or can you duplicate the behavior with others?

Only this song

Thanks again, and are any of the other songs in the Playlist also purchased tracks?

Try this;

open iTunes on your computer

connect your iPhone

When it appears in iTunes, select it.

You should see the device toolbar (Summary, Info, Apps, etc...). Choose the Music tab.

Remove the check mark next to "Sync Music" and then click Apply.

It should sync with the iPhone and then remove all the music.

Add the check mark back next to "Sync Music" and make sure your Playlist is selected that includes the song.

Click Apply once more.

Hopefully when it syncs back all your music, it will include the troublesome track.
