NPOV[edit]

Under the 'Reception' section, there is a great deal of editorializing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.61.75.33 (talk) 02:17, 29 December 2011 (UTC) I agree. - Chris — Preceding unsigned comment added by 111.94.139.51 (talk) 08:42, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

NPOV AGAIN[edit]

Please stop removing the NPOV tag. That's poor form, and if it continues, it will be brought to the attention of administrators. Currently, there is a great deal of NPOV in both the Composition and Reception area of this article. Please discuss how to better word things so as to avoid this. Thank you. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Avoid_weasel_words SLWatson (talk) 18:27, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Biased[edit]

Who wrote this wiki article? A "Swiftie"? Please, consider how biased this article is. I praise swift as much as the next fan but this should be about the song, not about Taylor swift's songwriting skills or the praise she was given. Another thing, why quote PopCrush? Can't there be a more "legit" resource? Stick to billboard or something. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.185.32.16 (talk) 03:07, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

Official Single or Promo single?[edit]

This is a question that needs discussed in length and unanimously agreed on by all those who edit on here so here it goes. Recently on YouTube Swift's Vevo uploaded a behind the scenes featurette where Swift claims the song is the lead single off the soundtrack. (source). But no source has stated whether this has been released to radio stations or not as an official single and a music video has been released for the song but the same has happened to "Crazier" by Swift back when the Hannah Montana: The Movie soundtrack was released but it was a promotional single. So let's get this discussion started and get other's opinions. Swifty*talkcontribs 14:02, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Safe & Sound (song)[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Safe & Sound (song)'s orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "riaa":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 18:51, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Edit request on 14 May 2012[edit]

The song has already sold over 1 million digital downloads.[1]

Capital Cities song[edit]

Can we add

This page is about the Taylor Swift song. For the song by Capital Cities, see Safe and Sound (Capital Cities song).

to avoid confusion with the song of the same title released around the same time?

Done. Songsteel (talk) 18:25, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

Edit needed[edit]

Chart performance:

"Prior from the released of the album, the song rebounds from number 71 to number 35 in its 11th week."

Makes little sense and matches neither the voice nor the tense of the rest of the article. Consider:

"In it's 11th week, prior to the release of the album, the song jumped from number #72 to #35." — Preceding unsigned comment added by JoeNextDoor (talkcontribs) 22:23, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 13 July 2014[edit]

Last sentence of the first introductory paragraph reads "...the simplicity of the music, and it's lyrics, some citing..." where "it's" should be "its".

Under the section "Critical reception", a quoted source says "...breathy, ethereal and heady, not frothy and lite" where "lite" probably deserves a [sic].

It's been mentioned on this page, but the sentence under "Chart performance" which begins " Prior from the released of the album, the song rebounds" needs some serious work. I suggest: "In its 11th week, just prior to the release of the album, the song rose again from 71st to 35th on the Billboard Hot 100."

Under the section "Awards and nominations", "an CMA Award" should be just "a CMA Award".

Under the section "Music video", "In between scenes" should be just "Between scenes".

Also under "Music video", the sentence which reads "The video was shot in a cemetery and the scene with Swift on the graves are a real couple's grave from 1853" would be better phrased as "The music video was shot in a cemetery, and the scene featuring Swift sitting atop the graves are of a real couple who died in 1853."
