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

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 auto.

The need for such an ingenious track stems from an annoyance iPhone users face when listening to music in their auto.

Paris open to video games at Olympics
The infrastructure budget in Paris has been estimated at 3 billion euros ($3 billion), with operational costs of 3.2 billion euros.

The song is created for anyone who has plugged their iPhone into their vehicle stereo only to have it automatically start blaring whatever song is alphabetically at the top of their list. But it might be more fun to pay the buck and see if the world can get a blank track of silence to the top of the iTunes charts. The tweet gained 15,000 likes within 24-hours, catapulting his silent symphony onto iTunes' coveted song chart ahead of artists Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore, Bruno Mars, Kesha, and Justin Timberlake, among other superstars. Many will surely point out that this hack could be done by manually making your own blank song and adding it to your phone, but the convenience of spending 99 cents on this to make the problem go away is a tradeoff that seems worth it. Then again, you really can't put a price on silence.
