    I have a song in my iTunes library that is "Matched". I know the metadata is wrong (artist, title, album, artwork) and I don't know what song it really is...but it's "matched". Is there a way to tell exactly what iTunes Match found in the iTunes store that matched the track in my library?

    I tried deleting it and downloading it from the cloud, hoping that iTunes Match would fill in the metadata, but no such luck. It just downloads my messed up metadata.

    Right click the song title and choose "Show it iTunes Store".

    Interesting! Thanks for the tip. I tried it out and it told me that it was not available in the U.S. But I am in the U.S. and my account is a U.S. account.

    There's no way to find out what song is matched. On the positive side, many people have carefully created their metadata and iTunes Match doesn't mess with it. "Show in iTunes Store" looks at the metadata.

    Something like matchTag might be what you're looking for.
