I've been trying to find a place to put this idea that I randomly thought of, so I'll just put it here.


So there are some songs with ridiculously long intros and outros, and there are songs that have like 1 'good part' but that good part is really good. So I was thinking if Spotify can make a "snipping" option where you can just crop some part of the sound out, such as just clicking edit, then on the song, then moving the sliders to adjust what portion you want to listen to. After you slide it to your liking, such as snipping that outro from "Runaway" by Kanye right, you just exit from the whole snipping and it plays your snippet of the song whenever the song gets played. Like I mentioned "Runaway" earlier, some people would want to just listen to the outro because they like that or something, they can just move the far left slider towards the outro. Vice versa they can slide the right slider to the beginning of the outro to end the song before the outro begins. That way if you ever listen to songs that are good but when they get to that point you don't like, you won't have to skip, it'll just end for you if you preset it to.


It would be amazing to be able to have a "show lyrics" option when the song is being played. With the option of an automatic, speed-adjustable down scroll.Please, please, please!


Also, selecting several songs at once to delete / add to one or several playlists would be extremely useful.
