    I've just enabled iTunes Match and am currently uploading songs it couldn't match.

    It seems I may have a fair few where the full titles are not correct.
    E.g. An Honest Mistake by The Bravery.
    When I ripped it many moons ago I seem to have named it Honest Mistake.

    I checked the iTunes Store and sure enough the song is there.

    Once this initial upload is done, how can I get iTunes Match to look again at these songs?

    As far as I can tell, the only way to get iTunes Match to re-scan unmatched (i.e., Uploaded) songs is to delete the song from iTunes (and from iCloud) and then re-add it to iTunes.

    That said, iTunes Match matches songs based on some sort of audio comparison and not by titles. You can add files to iTunes with no title at all and iTunes Match will match them, if the song is in the iTunes library.
