iTunes 12.7 - can't add MP3's?

Bill Taylor
Why does this latest version of iTunes allow me to add some songs, while apparently sitting motionless when I try to add other songs; all of which are songs in the MP3 file format?

… I’ve noticed this odd, ‘selective’ behaviour [I’m Canadian, and that’s how we spell it] in previous version of iTunes.

More details? Is there an error?

I've never seen this, and have added tens of thousands of songs to iTunes successfully.

I've seen it happen in earlier versions of iTunes (didn't try adding
mp3s to iTunes in the day I was running it) when a supposed mp3 is
damaged in some way (or just isn't an mp3). iTunes silently ignores such
files. If you open the (alleged) mp3 in QuickTime Player, it will at
least give you an error alert if it doesn't recognize the contents. If
it opens and plays fine in QuickTime player but iTunes still doesn't
like it, I don't know what's going on.
