I'm REALLY hoping there's a quick solution to this....

I accidentally hit delete while within iTunes and I guess it was set to just delete without asking to confirm. So I deleted a couple songs by accident but have no idea which ones. I still have everything on my HD, so adding them back is easy if I can just know which ones to add back.

iTunes doesn't seem to have an undo delete.

Any ideas?

I REALLY don't want to have to go through 3500 songs and manually check against my phone (which has my full library on it).

Any help is HUGELY appreciated.

As said above, if you deleted the song files they will be in Trash as long as you didn't empty it.

I didn't delete the actual files, but just the songs out of my iTunes library. Problem is figuring out which ones.

You could probably define a different location for your library, consolidate* it, and see what files were left in the old location.

*I can't recall if consolidate moves or copies files. If it copies them, then you would at least be able to compare the two libraries for differences.
