To remedy this First World problem, Mezrahi recorded almost 10 minutes of dead air, uploaded to iTunes and charged 99 cents per download.

The composition, though actually just minutes of nothing but silence, is nothing short of genius, as buyers can attest.

When an iPhone is plugged into (most) auto stereos, it will automatically begin to play music in alphabetical order.

If a certain playlist keeps auto-playing, put this track at the top.

Inspired by the frustration felt by anyone who has plugged their phone into a auto radio only to hear the first alphabetically listed song in their music library blare over the speakers, "A a a a a Very Good Song" is created to jump to the top of the list. The five "a's" in the title ensures that it always comes up first in the queue, offering you at least ten minutes to line up the songs you want to hear.

Rezhami's masterpiece only came out Thursday and yet it has already climbed to #67 up the iTunes chart, according to Engadget. We're not sure if Apple plans to remove the track, but given that Apple does take a cut from iTunes sales, it is an interesting conundrum. This also results in users wanting to skip the first song no matter how good is the track is.
