Any iMovie Experts Up In Here?

I'm working on a basic slideshow video and the musical accompaniment isn't long enough, i.e, it ends before the video ends, by a good minute and a half.

A couple of YouTube videos claim you can just grab the end of the song and just stretch it to fit but that's not happening for me.

Any other tactics? The music is a classical piece and the mood is just perfect for the video, I would hate to have to try to find a replacement.

I'm not familiar with iMovie, but I have edited a slideshow in other software where the music came in too short. In my case, I copied the music, sliced it a point where it was somewhat repetitive, and overlayed a segment of the copy towards the end of the original piece. Then I deleted the ending of the original. That seamlessly lengthened it by the two minutes I needed.

Just so happens that sounds like exactly what I did. Thanks!
