My music just STOPS playing in the middle of a song

It seems to happen with music I bought from iTunes but I'm not sure the problem is exclusive to those. When it stops and I tap the "play" button, it will play for a bit and then stop again. This happens multiple times within a single track.

Any idea why?

Thank you in advance.

Sounds like a sync gone bad. I would remove the media from your phone and sync it again.

No idea why, but give a hard reset a try. This is holding the power and home buttons down at the same time until phone shuts off. When it does, release the home button. Phone will restart.
Worth a try. This solves a lot of problems.

I sort of noticed the same problem. When I'm walking around I'll start a song then throw it in my pocket. At first I thought the phone was hitting something in my pocket causing it to pause. But later noticed it happens even if I don't but it in my pocket. I'll try the hard reset/resync.

Never realized this was such a problem. This is the first I have heard anyone talk about this.

It's happened to me twice. Once it was a bad MP3 and the other time resyncing my media fixed it.

Some of your songs might be corrupted. Sync it up again.
