It sounds like you have a good grasp on the situation but would it be
possible just to make a single file that ended in a short silence (like
1/4th or 1/2 of a second or maybe even longer) ?

my thinking is that if there is silence at the exact point of transition
(even if its just a short silence) that starting up the song again wouldnt
be noticeable (silence has no seams hehe)
