    I had the same problem and I used the open-source free programme Audacity which I downloaded  http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/legacy_mac  It is quite comprehensive and I am certainly not au fait with all it can do, but I just imported the music I wanted and then cut out the vocal stuff i didn't want and put it back into itunes, just making sure I named it with the number of seconds so not to confuse it with the original. It then should fit perfectly where ever you need to put it in your movie.  I did find that I "split" the audio so that it was a little longer than I needed so it could then be finally adjusted down to the last frame in the clip.  Just an idea.  Using Audacity is fairly self evident.  Play around with it and you will get the hang of the simple stuff. Just make sure you download the one suitable for your O/S
