Garage Band can do it! Drag it from iTunes, onto the desktop, and then off the desktop into Garbage Band. You can then shrink the ending of it, and send it back to iTunes

Another option other than Killyp's is if you just want to cut the beginning or end off a song you can do it in iTunes. Right-click (or ctrl click) the song you want, click 'Get Info' then find options at the top. Look for the start/stop time's and enter where you want the song to start/end. Click ok, right click the song again and covert it to MP3 or AAC, which ever you have available.

That should work.

you can do it in itunes if you want to cut out music at the start or the end, by right clicking on the song and get info and options. burn to cd and then rip again. or use quicktime pro if you have it, or garage band.

You don't have to burn it to a CD if you don't want to (See Above Post), just convert the song. Saves a CD.
