After spending months tearing my hair out, I’ve finally figured out the source of an iOS Music issue I’ve had. All songs in an album were displaying this string instead of titles. Turns out that’s the TIT1 ID3 tag - which Music/iTunes on macOS can’t display or edit.

Not being able to remove or even *see* that tag in iTunes meant that I was having trouble figuring out where it was even getting that from. Had to strip it using eyeD3 or FFmpeg. Mystified why iOS can display this when Mac can’t.
