iPhone: How can I build a playlist of snippets of songs in my music library?

When I listen to music on my iPhone, I often don't listen to the whole song; instead, I will listen just to one particular verse that I like and skip the the instrumental or chorus portions. Then I might listen to that verse again, or skip to the next. Rather than manually scrubbing through songs to get to the parts I like each time I listen, I'd like to build a library/playlist of my favorite parts of songs. For example:
Song 1: 0:46-1:05
Song 2: 0:23-0:40 and 0:51-1:17
Song 3: 2:10-2:42
I want to be able to skip forward and backward through snippets, rather than being forced to listen to the whole thing sequentially.
There are a bunch of DJ apps for iOS (I tried DJ Mixer Pro), but they don't seem to be optimized for my use case: they have a bunch of stuff I don't need (like fading/mixing/special effects), and seem unwieldy for making what I described above.
I know I could edit the audio files on my computer and create separate files and put them in a playlist, but I'm looking for something less labor intensive, since essentially I just want to create bookmarks in my audio files.
Is there any method/app for doing what I want to do? Either an iOS app or a PC app, as long as I can listen to the final result on my iPhone.
