im making a video of my vacation on imovie i want to use a song in the back ground but i dont want it to start from the beginning so on itunes i went to the info part of the song i want and changed the start and stop times on the song. it works on itunes even in the preview part in imovie when your looking through your itunes library but when i drag the song to the movie clips it starts from the beginning . is there another way to do this so that it works?

Which iMovie are you using? In iMovie11(maybe 9 as well), drop the song on top of the clip rather than next to it. This way you will be able to drag the beginning of the song to where you want it to start.
