The Sounds of Silence: Ten-Minute Silent Track Hits iTunes Top 100

Don’t you hate it when you plug your iPhone into your car’s USB port, and the first song (alphabetically), in your iTunes library starts to play, whether you like it or not? There is a solution for that, but it’ll cost you $0.99. Or not.

The Sounds of Silence: Ten-Minute Silent Track Hits iTunes Top 100

A new song on the iTunes top 100 charts, called ” A a a a a Very Good Song” is nine minutes and fifty-eight seconds of complete silence. That gives driver’s plenty of time to plug their iPhone in, start the car, put on their seat belt, adjust the mirrors, and find another track to play. (Perhaps from your “Drivin'” playlist?)

The “song” was created by Samir Mezrahi, launched on iTunes last Wednesday, Soon ranking in the iTunes Top 50. As of the time of this writing, it sits at #93 on the iTunes hit parade. The track will run you a cool $0.99, or you can add it to your library for free if you have an Apple Music subscription.

Or, as one Redditor pointed out, you can always make a recording of silence on your own, and name it “Aaaaaaaaaa” or something similar, and add it to your library. (But don’t use it for a ringtone.)
