'Date Added' Workaround

I've used this for years to change a Date Added:

Get off the internet
Change the date in System Prefs to whatever you want (ex: "Aug 7, 2003")
Highlight the music you want to adjust the date of
Delete music but KEEP FILES
Locate this music in your library directory.
Drag it into iTunes.

They will now be there with the Date that you set. Repeat as necessary. One bummer is that you lose the play count (booooo) so this is not perfect.

Recently my iTunes library freaked and parsed every song. They now all have 11/31/2011 as the date added. "Nooooooooo!!!!" was heard being screamed by me for miles.
