How to Clear your Play Queue
This is not an officially supported Spotify workaround.
Is your Spotify misbehaving? Playing songs which are you not expecting?
It sounds like you need to clear your Play Queue.
First thing to try is make a playlist which only contains one track (you sometimes get strange behaviour if you try a blank playlist), and select "Choose as Current Playlist" in the right click menu (on the playlist name in your sidebar). If that doesn't empty your play queue then follow the steps below.
This appears to be a common problem if the number of community posts are anything to go by, thankfully there is an easy and quick way to fix it. Just follow the steps below:
1. Disable Repeat Mode
Disable Repeat mode by unticking the icon in the bottom right of the client window. If you do not do this, you won't be able to clear the play queue since it will go in a loop forever!
2. Navigate to your Play Queue.
The Play Queue is accessible by pressing the "Play Queue" text in the top left corner of the Spotify client. At this point, you can manually delete any tracks which are in yellow text to speed up the process.
3. Double Click the Top Track of the Queue.
This will make sure that it is playing.
4. Repeatedly press the Skip/Next Button until your Play Queue is Completely Empty.
These buttons will be in the bottom left corner of the desktop client. Once you have done that you should have a Play Queue that looks like this:
5. Return to your playlists or other music and enjoy!
That is it! You are done, return to your playlists or searches and enjoy your music!

If you are still having issues after following these steps, I would strongly suggest you try a clean reinstallation of the Spotify client as it should also fix any issues you are having with this.
