However this problem might have been solved by a certain Samir Mezrahi who recently uploaded a 10 minute track onto iTunes (via AppleInsider) dubbed "A a a a a Very Good Song" that basically gives users 10 minutes worth of silence (9 minutes 58 seconds to be exact) so that they can select their own playlist before the song starts blasting in their vehicle.
The composition, though actually just minutes of nothing but silence, is nothing short of genius, as buyers can attest.
iPhones plugged into USB ports automatically start playing music alphabetically. This mean users listen to the same song-probably starting with the letter A-every time they turn on their vehicle. 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. On Thursday, downloads were up to 1,100 and his creation was No. 67 on iTunes' music chart.
The track is a likely target for Apple to remove because it can be interpreted as a prank. This also results in users wanting to skip the first song no matter how good is the track is. When one Twitter user complained that they could not buy the song, the support account offered to help determine the problem for them.
