put just a portion of a track into a playlist?

I am making playlists for fitness walking.  For "interval training" I'd like to be able to put just portions of  tracks into a playlist. For example, I might warm up to one or two songs in their entirety, but then speed up for just 60 or 90 seconds, then slow it down for 3 minutes, then have another 60 or 90 seconds of a higher beats-per-minute song, repeat. . . .  I'm new, and have figured out how to make playlists of various songs, but can't figure out if there is a way to put just part of a song into a playlist.  Thanks.

Hey! 🙂

 

This is currently not possible, since Spotify streams the tracks from its catalogue without any kind of editing. Playback over only part of a song also brings in possible licensing issues, since if that was possible, in terms of paying artists what counts as a track play? 

 

It has been suggested (or something similar) over on the ideas exchange here if you would like to show your support there!

Peter, thank you for your answer.  I did add my "wish" on the link you provided.   In the meantime, maybe I can look for shorter songs for my higher bpm intervals.
