An MP3 I downloaded from iTunes has some annoying narration playing over the music at the very beginning and end.

Is there any song/music editing software that would allow me to delete the narration track, leaving only the "pure" song?

Have a look at Audacity.
If it's a separate track, it should be able to remove it.

zombiewhacker, good morning.

+1 regarding Audacity.

I've used it to clean up multiple MP3's in my collection.

Once you've tweaked the file, you'll need to Export the file (you won't see a Save in the File drop down menu) as an MP3 (or from a slew of other options, i.e. AIFF, MP2, Ogg, etc.) and once you've selected that you'll see an Edit Metadata window where you can tweak all sorts of stuff.


Once you've done that, the file will be exported and then you may have an option to "Save Project As" which saves (I believe) all your workparts.


It's not the easiest program I've ever used but it's free and works well.


Plus, if you do get stuck the FAQ at their site (http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/faq.html) is pretty helpful.

Onward,

Winterland

Thanks to both.

Anyway, it turns out I needn't have bothered. When I opened the MP3 in Audacity I discovered that the file is in MONO (left and right tracks exactly the same). Editing out narration is therefore not an option. <_<
