itunes has a find duplicates function that works for exact dupes

View menu > Show Duplicates

There is also a script called Corral iTunes Dupes that is more customisable

Go for version 2, dougscripts.com is a great resource for iTunes by the way

You can click "View->Show Duplicates"
That'll show you only songs with duplicates. The select one of each duplicate you want to get rid of and delete it.

Edit: Looks like Louishen beat me to it
