any songs, albums, etc. you've purchased from the itunes store you should be able to re download:

go to the itunes store page
sign in to your account
on the right there'll be a quick link to purchased items
click on that
click on the all tab
at the foot of the page click the download button

anything elso you've ripped from CD, etc. you'll be relying on any back up you have made

what have the Roman's ever done for us?

If the hard drive had to be erased you would have to resort to something like Data Rescue 3 to do the recovery. There is a demo version that you can use to see whether anything could be recovered.

One problem is that the music has probably been overwritten by the stuff on the drive now.

And, you didn't make a backup of your data prior to having it repaired even though Apple recommends doing so?
