Ok, I find myself in need of an option that iTunes doesn't seem to give me. It's possible that it's there and I just don't know how to use it, but I honestly can't find it.

So, I have a lot of music, .wav, other music and sound files I've been moving over from computer to computer for a very long time. Enough that I have very little idea what all is on my computer until the song pops up on a random shuffle.

I need a "HOLY GOD DELETE THIS OFF MY COMPUTER" option from the actual music player.

So far the only thing I've found is to hunt down the song in the iTunes folder and delete it from there (and I'm still unsure if that's the only copy of it on the hard drive with the way that iTunes appropriates music files).

This works for things like when I find out I have the entire works of Dread Zeppelin but not so good when I find out I have a single unknown artist crappy techno song that shares the same title with other songs.

So, is there an option in iTunes that will allow me to do this? If not, is there another music player out there (for Mac) that will?

I have iTunes "keep my music organized for me," and as a result whenever I delete a song from the library it asks if I want to send it to the Recycle Bin. I've seen this option be absent on computers with manual file organization.

seems like iTunes does the trick anyway, but if you're interested in using a different player for some reason, MediaMonkey lets you delete tracks from the hard drive right out of the player interface.

Read it and weep, fella

Everytime I remove a song from my iTunes library, it asks me if I want to delete the actual file from my hard drive as well. Do I have something special turned on to make it keep asking me that? I thought that was normal.

I'm still using the original G4/400 MHz with 320 MB RAM, and every new version of OSX has run better on this machine than the previous version. I'm running 10.3.9 right now, and I'll probably make the switch to 10.4 pretty quickly.
