.....'A a a a a Very Good Song'.....to help when plugging iPhone into car instead of automatically playing the first song in iTunes which begins with 'A' [ so every time you will hear the same song at the top of the list which can get annoying ]....gives one time to change song......99 cents but if Apple Music subscriber, then free.....


A Ten-Minute Silent Song Is Soaring Up the iTunes Charts

....For some vehicles, when an iPhone is plugged into the car's USB port music playback begins automatically, and it always starts in alphabetical order at the top of the user's iTunes library. Because of this, many users will hear the same song, usually beginning with an "A," over and over again each time they plug their iPhone into their car. This week, a potential solution to that problem has been soaring up the iTunes charts in the form of a ten-minute silent song called "A a a a a Very Good Song" [Direct Link].

Created by Samir Mezrahi, the song allows users a full nine minutes and fifty-eight seconds to find the song they actually want to hear after connecting their iPhone to their car through USB. Mezrahi is charging $0.99 for each download of the music-less track, although Apple Music subscribers can simply add the song into their library for free.



A a a a a Very Good Song launched on iTunes on Wednesday, August 9, and as of the writing of this article it sits at #46 on iTunes' Top Songs chart. The song has climbed 21 spots in under a day, when Engadget reported that it was at #67 early on August 10. If it continues to climb, the song will surpass artists like Ed Sheeran, Kendrick Lamar, and Miley Cyrus.

For any CarPlay users, or for those who connect to their vehicle through Bluetooth, the automatic iTunes playback phenomenon is not as much of an issue. For those who do face the problem, it's been discovered within a wide array of different brands and car systems. As one Redditor pointed out, for users who don't have an Apple Music subscription and who would prefer not to pay $0.99 for a ten-minute silent track, they can also make a silent recording of their own and add it to iTunes.



not really a song.............?!

I wonder how much he'll make.

Also wonder if there will be copy-cats with similar alphabetic sorting and song length. And then look forward to the copyright infringement trial over two songs of silence.

I did something like this many years ago. To think I should have published it as song and made money (I have no idea how to do that though).

For my version, I took one of my all time favorite songs, Paralyzed by the Gang of Four, and duplicated it, renamed in AAAA Paralyzed, and then modified the volume level of that version in iTunes to be very quiet. The advantage of a very quiet song vs. silent is that I can tell something is playing vs forgetting and just hearing silence.

There are plenty of Youtube versions of John Cage's 4' 33" (Silence) that are nearly silent and they wouldn't cost anything.

first problem is that most people have no clue how to do it.

Then those who know how to do it, can use that time to do something more productive rather than trying to save a buck.
