Silent Song Makes Itunes Top 50

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – It’s not quite what Simon and Garfunkle had in mind when they sang “The Sound of Silence.” An unusual tune made its way onto the top 50 on the itunes chart- it’s completely silent.

“AAAAAA Very Good Song,” that’s six a’s, is 10 minutes of dead air, and costs 99 cents. Its popularity may be due to driver’s frustration when they plug their smartphone into their car and usually the first song alphabetically plays by default. Now the silent song, with those six a’s, plays first.
