When it is Paused or halted (whatever that means) 
it is NOT 'running'. There is nothing moving ... 
ever. There is no power being used. There are no 
mechanical items moved into place. Nothing. No 
memory is unavailable due to its not being quit.

Force Quitting an app is totally unnecessary in 
this case. After pausing or finishing a song, 
merely pressing the Home button will Quit the 
app. Everything else is a total waste of time.

Resisting temptation is easier when you think you'll probably get another chance later on.
