Silent Track Becomes an iTunes Hit, for a Reason

Aug 16, 2017  •  Post A Comment

An unusual track has made the top 50 on the iTunes charts. The track, titled “A a a a a Very Good Song,” costs the usual 99 cents but provides a little less than 10 minutes of dead air.

The AP reports that there’s a reason the track has become a hit.

“While the musical quality of the track is debatable, its popularity is due to its simple role: When people plug smartphones into a car, usually the first song alphabetically plays by default,” the story reports. “‘A a a a a Very Good Song’ offers users several minutes of respite.”

The report notes that the track, released last week, is the brainchild of Samir Mezrahi. “While high on iTunes, the song hasn’t made much of a stir on Google Play,” the AP reports.
