Display, create text file listing info of dead tracks

OS X 10.8 and later only. 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.

Also see Music Folder Files Not Added

To find and delete dead tracks see Super Remove Dead Tracks.

See the video on YouTube.
