The 5 Computer Authorization Limit! IMPORTANT QUESTION!

As everyone probably knows, on iTunes there is a limit of authorizing 5 computers to play a song. However, over the years I've had computes crash, so I've hit the limit, and since I can't get on them, I can't deauthorize the computers individually. That means I will have to deauthurize all computers. Is there some way to authorize all songs on iTunes for my computer at one time, after I deauthorize all, or will I have to authorize them one at a time? Thanks for the help!

It's the computer you authorise, not the songs. You only have to do it once.

...for each account. If you have songs from two different accounts, you'll have to authorize both accounts on that computer. If you have songs from three different accounts, you'll have to authorize three, etc..
