Manually changing the play count in iTunes
Hi, I'm looking to to find a way to change the play count for a track in iTunes other than manually skipping the song to the last second each time.
Since I'm sure someone will want to know why, well, I have an 88 play count for a U2 song that was in 128kb but I just bought a newer version at 256 and want to replace the old one. I'd like to keep the 88 plays and apply it to the new, higher quality track and delete the old version. It would be tedious skip to the last second, then repeat, 88 times. I've done it this way for up to 20 plays but this is too much.
Since it apparently can't be done by using the mouse and doing it inside the program, from what I can tell, does anyone know any sort of workaround that could get this accomplished?

I have never used scripts so I didn't "get it" at first, especially when there was no "installer." But the other part of the instructions worked. I added a scripts folder to username/Library/iTunes/, selected the run button and it was done. Great!
Thanks again and yes, I will nose around at some of the other things available from that site. I've been meaning for years to start doing scripts.
