I have a bunch of single songs from the iTunes store (Starbucks Pick of the Week) and in a misguided attempt to get them to organize them the way I wanted, I screwed up much of the metadata for these songs.

Is there a way to get it back, like you can with songs you directly imported from a CD using "Get Track Names"?

For songs you purchased, check to see if iTunes in the cloud allows you to download again the songs from the store.

If so, delete all the incorrect purchased tracks (making a backup of the computer just in case) and then re-download the affected tracks.
