    Wouldn´t be possible: which song or what song is it playing?
    Está sonando mi canción preferida - it is playing my favourite song ?

    What song is playing.

    My favorite song is playing

    In order to use "it" something has to be playing that song.
    For example;

    Are you listening to that station? yes, it is playing my favorite song.

    Nunca pensé en cómo se dice esa frase, pero me suena mejor
    which song is being played?
    Porque si decimos: what song was playing? = ¿qué canción estaba tocando?
    It doesn't make much sense
    Pero me pareció raro que nadie sugiriera lo que dije, quizá esté equivocada.
