Deleted files won't disappear from iPod/iPhone

I deleted a bunch of MP3 files from my hard disc, but they will not disappear from my iPhone and iPod, even after synchronizing. I think I know why: I deleted the MP3s from my hard disc but not from my iTunes Library. I don't want all the hassle of figuring out which songs I deleted and deleting them from my iTunes Library, I just want them to disappear from the iPhone/iPod and free up the space.

I am thinking of deleting ALL the songs on my iPhone/iPod and then syncing it again. Is there an easier way?

You should delete the files from iTunes, not Finder. That way, they're gone from both your iTunes library and from your hard drive. If you delete from Finder, iTunes can't sync the change to your iPod/iPhone.
