Display, create text file listing info of dead tracks

This script checks your entire iTunes library for missing and presumed dead tracks--those tracks that iTunes is unable to associate with a file and which are listed in iTunes with a "!"--and can create a text file listing these tracks by alleged File Path (if available), Song Name, Artist and Album, which you can view using TextEdit.

To remove "dead" tracks from iTunes, try using TrackSift.

OS X 10.6 and later only. Universal version for PowerPC machines available at the link below in the "Info" section.
