Is there any app (or otherwise) that allows me to select audio tracks to play, or even just skip to the next track on my iPhone 4 via a PC connected to the iPhone by USB?

Not directly an answer, but AirFoil allows you to steam audio from your computer an iPhone or other iOS device. Regarding the real question, the best I can think of would be something that can operate as an AVRCP controller, but I have not been able to find a Windows app to do this. – Christian L Jan 31 '11 at 4:53
