Sometimes I just want to listen to part of a song.

In Youtube I can set start/end times for a particular video. I'm listening to this song and only want to start at 2:50, and end somewhere else.

This example is a 6 minute song... but I'm sure there are other refrains/etc in pop music that could want this.

If you have access to a Mac, you can right-click the song, then go into Get InfoOptions, where you can then set both Start and Stop times.

These preferences will propagate to your iOS devices next time you synchronize them to your iTunes Music Library. If you subscribe to iTunes in the Cloud (via iTunes Match or MUSIC), that will be done over the air.

This is a persistent modification that will apply every time you listen to that song (until you reset the Start and Stop times).
