Call it a first world problem, but it’s pertinent at least to our generation. If you’ve ever plugged your phone into your car music system, you’d know why it’s annoying for the same song to start playing every single time. Sometimes it’s annoying because you have heard that song too many time, and sometimes it’s just one of your guilty pleasures you don’t want anyone else to know about. However, now you can put an end to this nightmare, and it’s all thanks to a song.
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. (By the way, there’s a reason why it’s 9:58 minutes and not full 10 minutes. iTunes charges for a full album once a song goes beyond 10 minutes). Named A a a a a Very Good Song, he released the song two days ago, and it’s already making a lot of buzz on the social media and on the iTunes.
Essentially, since iPhone plays music alphabetically whenever you plug it into many music systems, that usually means there’s one song that you hear whether you want to or not. But thanks to Rezhami’s blank song and quirky trick of naming it A a a a a Very Good Song, this would always play first and give you plenty of time to queue up the songs you want to hear.
hey I released a blank song that will play 1st so that *one* song won’t play every time u plug ur phone into ur car https://t.co/FL83YUOOcz

In less than two days, Rezhami’s trick has resonated with a large number of people. Since he tweeted announcing the release of the track, his post has received over 14,500 likes, and close to 5,000 retweets. More amazingly, his so-called song climbed up the iTunes charts rapidly. Yesterday, his track was jumping within the top 100s, being ahead artists like Kendrick Lamar, Kesha, Selena Gomez, The Chainsmokers, at a point of time. On iTunes India, the track is available for purchase for Rs 12. ALSO READ: Man loses his 20-year-old account for his unusual ‘noreply’ email address

Although, not to steal Rezhami’s thunder, but now that you already know the trick, instead of spending 12 bucks on the song, why wouldn’t you just record a blank song, and add it to your list. Just saying! ALSO READ: Here’s a Bluetooth fidget spinner that you can connect with your phone
