Restoring from time machine question

Hi there. My iMac hard drive of 2 yrs died and I got a replacement from AppleCare. I have time machine backups, but over the years I've installed a lot of junk on the mac that I don't want. So this is a chance for a fresh start. Can I selectively restore files like my iTunes library?

Prior to the crash I've experienced frustrations with the mac like not being able to print share, dropping wifi connections and other stuff. Hence I don't want to do a full system restore. I don't mind reinstalling key apps but the biggest issue now is I don't want to sync up my iPod and get it wiped out.
