Well, it seems clear that you clicked those checks to turn them *off* in
the first place, so you'll just have to click to turn them back on. If
they're not checked, they don't play.
The idea of a playlist isn't to make songs that you've marked unplayable
(by checking that box) play. It's to group songs together by some
criteria of your choosing and perhaps burn a CD from that list.
