Cant add songs to playlist

For some reason I get  "Sorry, we are unable to complete your request at this time,  Please try again later."  But it works hit or miss.  Some songs it allows me to add and others not?  Is this normal

I just started a free 90 day trial of Premium but no good if you cant add songs to as playlist.

Hey there, @STC6665. 👋

Sorry to hear that you're running into this issue. Are you listening to Pandora on a computer or on a device?

  1. If you are on a computer, are you listening from:
    • A Mac or Windows computer?
    • Our website, or the desktop app?
    • If you're listening from our website, what browser are you using?
  2. If you are on a device, what is the make and model (and carrier, if applicable)?

I look forward to hearing back! 🎧

I cannot add songs to any playlists. why is that? I was adding fine before. I have many playlists but I cannot add any songs to them now. well, I can see now that it is not all songs but only certain songs. Is there a reason why some songs cannot ber added to a playlist?
