Why iTunes users are buying this 10-min song of absolute silence

More amazingly, his "song" is climbing rapidly up the iTunes charts.

One fed up genius, Samir Mezrahi, has figured the way out of this otherwise-ridiculous-but-too-irritating-to-get-over issue, with the help of a 9:58 minute long silent song. So why are people buying it? Someone has created a 10-minute song of silence and named it 'A a a a a Very Good Song' so that vehicle rides no longer start by scrambling to find a song you want to hear. Interested users can buy the single from the iTunes store. It sits at 82nd at the time of writing, ahead of artists such as Dua Lipa, DJ Khaled, Keith Urban, and Ed Sheeran.

The blank iTunes song is not being used as a meditation aid, nor it is seen as a metaphorical representation of something.

Every time you hop in the auto and plug in your iPhone, the same song starts playing.

After half a day's search, the Nautilus , the world's largest private submarine, was found sailing in Køge Bay. Before his arrest, Madsen appeared on Danish television to discuss the submarine's sinking and his rescue.

However, with "A a a a a Very Good Song" in a user's library, the blank track will surely be the one that automatically plays.

Created for anyone who has plugged their iPhone into their auto 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. With "A a a a a Very Good Song" playing first, iPhone owners are given enough time, 10 minutes to be specific, to line up the songs they want to hear without other songs playing first. On the one hand, it's clearly a joke, but on the other Apple benefits from every sale.

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