Playlist track soft-deletion

Hi, I have been trying to find a track in my likes and my playlists which I believe has been deleted.
It would be better if Soundcloud just disabled a track (and skipping it during playback) instead of silently removing it from your likes and playlists, that way I could at least look up the song elsewhere, because I have no clue what it was named.
I recall part of the lyrics but they don't result in anything on google
(Hello operator, I'm on the elevator straight down all around looking for a troublemaker, a sinners kiss, i wan't with this...)

Quite frustrating.

It's most likely gone because the artist deleted it or made it private. it's also possible it was removed because of a copyright dispute. I don't think SoundCloud themselves are removing random tracks from playlists, however maybe a notification that a track has gone would be a good feature.
yeah, either a notification or a placeholder which still lets you view the songs page but not listen to it.
