Retrieving lost files after botched mv

When I typed the command
mv *.mp3 ~/M2M Music
I got the error "mv: cannot stat `/home/aleverentz/M2M': No such file or directory"
I realize now that that was because I forgot to put a backslash before the space...
But anyway, all the files ending in .mp3 now seem to be missing ... is there any way for me to retrieve those files?

Whoops, never mind ... I just figured out that the files got moved to a different directory that was simply called "Music". Sorry about that.
