A Song With 10-Minutes of Silence Crawls Up iTunes Charts

A Song With 10-Minutes of Silence Crawls Up iTunes Charts”

Why are iPhone owners paying $0.99 for the so-called song? Frantically scrolling through your music to find a song is no longer an issue with Samir Rezhami's song of silence. It is a 10-minute track of silence that users can purchase for $0.99.

The big question is, why? People have been actually been buying the blank track to address one of the most annoying things about plugging an iPhone into the USB ports of cars.

iPhones automatically play music alphabetically and many users of iPhones have probably developed an aversion to songs starting with the letter A for this reason.

Created for anyone who has plugged their iPhone into their vehicle stereo only to have it automatically start blaring whatever song is alphabetically at the top of their list, the title of Samir Mezrahi's "A a a a a Very Good Song" means that you won't be in any rush to queue up whatever it is you actually want to hear. The five "a's" in the title ensures that it always comes up first in the queue, offering you at least ten minutes to line up the songs you want to hear.

For a good number of iTunes users, those benefits are enough to shell out $0.99 for the blank track.

If you're an Apple Music user, we have even better news for you - you can just add the song to your library there as part of your subscription.

Mezrahi's "A a a a a Very Good Song" is also available on the Google Play store, where it has yet to crack the top 50, let alone the top 300.

Rezhami's masterpiece only came out Thursday and yet it has already climbed to #67 up the iTunes chart, according to Engadget.
