Why a silent, 10-minute song is climbing the iTunes charts

0 Minute Silent Song

A silent 10-minute song titled "A a a a a Very Good Song" reached the top 100 chart on iTunes this week, and is saving iPhone owners from some unnecessary road rage.

The composition, though actually just minutes of nothing but silence, is nothing short of genius, as buyers can attest.

ITunes users all know the aggravating feeling every time you plug your phone into your vehicle, or idly hit play: The first song in your library comes on, feeling less like music and more like an alarm clock, and you rush to turn it back off. Many songs starting with the letter A have probably been ruined thanks to this quirk - but if you download Rezhami's creation, you'll instead have plenty of time to queue up the songs you want to hear.

"A a a a a Very Good Song", which now sits at No. 47 on the iTunes charts, acts as a buffer, giving iPhone users 10 minutes of silence to make a selection before their overplayed track starts up again.

It's the result of an odd bug that has iPhones automatically start playing songs alphabetically.

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

The track is a likely target for Apple to remove because it can be interpreted as a prank.

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.
