I use Apple Music on purpose about once every six months. Usually, I am listening to a podcast or Amazon music or Audible.
When I plug my iPhone into the car, “ABC” by the Jackson Five comes screaming out. I don’t hate the song. I own it it, but fuck “ABC” by the Jackson Five when I am trying to get on the road to somewhere.
There isn’t an iPhone option to choose default apps for music or what happens when it gets plugged into a car. So today I went old school, I copied some songs and renamed them so they precede “ABC” alphabetically.
I am not a total monster. I kept the original versions, but hopefully the next time I hear Michael Jackson consent will be involved.
See that playlist? “ABC” by Jackson Five isn’t on the phone. What kind of monster app is downloading a song to play just because I plugged the phone into a car? Hubris? Satan?
This is only been an issue for about five years. I am excited/thrilled/disappointed/sad that it took me this long to come up with a solution.
