Where did my Google Music go?

I just fired up my Google Music account this afternoon and this is what I found:

 All 7,861 songs are gone.  I hope they come back.  Apparently, I’m not the only one this is happening to.

Update – all my music has returned sometime overnight.

    Like said.. I don’t understand the benefits of cloud streaming. Cloud settings and recommendations, yes. But streaming?

    Mine went away for a while this morning. Not sure how long. At least a half hour, but then they came back. A couple of other glitches…when playing back an album that the tracks blend from one to another, there is a small pause in between. Itunes had that problem for a while in the beginning too. The uploading process is really tortuous. And I can’t figure out the logic behind what it uploads and why. It would be nice to choose what you upload. I don’t really need my wife’s favorite Xmas music up in the cloud.

    I hope your songs come back. :(

    On a side note, do your smart playlists sync? All my regular playlists from iTunes are syncing over nicely, but none of my smart playlists are.

    jack– my normal playlists synced but not my smart playlists.

    paul– my account is still ok — all my songs are still there.

    Everything here seems to be normal. My uploads have stopped, however. The pitfalls of being part of a ‘Beta’ service I guess.

    What kind of bitrate does Google Music stream at? Tolerable?

      Music Beta plays files at a max bit rate of around 320 kilobytes per second
