Cover[edit]

In case this song got its own article, here's the cover, courtesy of Spotify (got it from the Spotify mailing list): http://open.spotify.com/email/640/album/4cCfFozyo6JC8acN8uIP7uMayast (talk) 22:19, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

I would also like to add that it is used as the official single cover in the service (https://play.spotify.com/album/4cCfFozyo6JC8acN8uIP7u, login required), and also as the background to the official audio track on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PvBc2TOpE4Mayast (talk) 22:24, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Lead[edit]

I know a song is not the same thing as a single release, but can we please just write that "the song was released as the lead single" instead "[the track] also appears on the 'Magic' single of the same name, released ... as the lead single "? I'd say the second version sounds pompous, and I think that writing about a "single of the same name" would make more sense if the single would contain for example two B-sides (in addition to the title track), and the release would also be physical. But when it's just this one track, and only in a digital form, the first version just sounds more natural. By the way, the form "[song X] was released as the n-th single [from/promoting the album]" is commonly used in FA- and GA-class song articles on Wikipedia. — Mayast (talk) 14:40, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

If we're really only developing these articles purely to make them GA or FA class, couldn't we at least diversify the criteria for what makes GA or FA? I really don't see why everything has to be a single standard across all of Wikipedia. I would've thought Wikipedia was all about getting the information across as unbiased and correct as possible, but if it's really all based on article popularity...
