I couldn't be sadder than that, honestly, the only reason that this and other "Bionic" articles were redirected was because of the lackluster sales, because saying that the article doesn't meet Wikipedia criteria for songs is very controversial, since many articles here of the same format (non-single), which has charted in the same chart, only with ALBUM REVIEWS as sources, received GA nominations, and now these articles were simply redirected? And what about the criterion of redirect an article since it lacks coverage independent of album reviews? Why the same rules are not applied to every non-single article here? "Desnudate" even has a single source about the song (a track-by-track commentary from the singer herself), however if we dig deeper and search other articles here on Wikipedia, you'll find them receiving GA nominations, even lacking a single source about the song itself. Well, what I'm trying to say is that you can't apply a rule to selected articles, it needs to be apply for every article (in this case, every non-single article). I worked so hard on these articles, dedicated my time (many months), did many researches to make a beautiful book in the end, but then I find out that all my effort was in vain, because of a rule that is not applied to every article and clearly it's only because some users didn't want these articles anymore. I was even looking many other sources and references to add, and I was going to improve them even more with a more refined vocabulary, so they would become perfect, not to receive a GA nomination, but to stay here as they have the right to.

See WP:MERCY, WP:WAX, and WP:EFFORT. Sorry you feel this way, but this is a song that simply doesn't meet inclusion criteria. It has nothing to do with whether the song was released as a single or not. What matters is whether there is significant coverage outside of album reviews from reliable secondary sources. Artists talking about their own work doesn't count as notable coverage as that is essentially self-promotion. The "rule" isn't just applied to specific songs, though. There are other songs that have articles and shouldn't, but those are not relevant to this track's notability per WP:WAX. Snuggums (talk / edits) 04:13, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
