    I have a song on my iPod that I want to walk down the aisle on but the song is about 3 1/2 minutes long and I want to somehow get it down to about 1 1/2 minutes by removing the second verse and the chorus. Does anyone know how I can edit the song on an iPod? I also have it on CD if it can be edited that way.

        I think it can be done in Garageband (i.e., if you have a mac).

          Not sure if this will help you or anyone else, but I just discovered that in i-tunes if you right click a song, then click on "get info", then click "options", you can alter the start and stop time of a song (i.e. get rid of that really long blank space on either side that some songs have). It transfers onto the ipod and really makes the play-list flow together much better I have found. You can also adjust the volume of each song on here too if you need to...itunes is supposed to automatically adjust them all if you have it set up to do that, but I've noticed it doesn't always work for me.

          Anyhow if there is a good place in your song that you could just end it, this may possibly work for you. Sorry so late on responding to this, been working on a play-list for months and just stumbled onto this part of i-tunes!!

            I was going to suggest doing this as well, you would just have to listen to the song and chose the part that you want and make sure to write down the time of the song from where the verse you like starts and where it ends. After that you just enter those numbers in the START TIME an d STOP TIME slots and hit OK.
