Thank you for reporting the bug to make Ubuntu better. However, you did not supply enough information.

*Where are the songs? (Hard drive, external drive, etc.)
*Is there an error reported when trying to edit the uneditable song? If so, what is it?

sudo apt-get install easytag easytag-aac

You can then use easytag to edit the tags. Simple
