    On a Mac, the iTunes Media folder (where all of your songs files are kept) is located here by default


    <startup disk>/Users/<your home folder>/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/


    NOTE:  The settings are in iTunes preferences Advanced tab.  If you changed the settings, the song files may be located elsewhere.


    Why do you ask?  If you are transferring your iTunes data to another computer, there is a specific way to do it right.  You shouldn't just move the song files, if you want to keep the supporting data, such as playlists, playcount, ratings, etc.
