  • Someone more familiar with the subject needs to rewrite the article with a neutral tone.

--Can you please give us some examples of where the article's tone is not neutral? Nowhere do the writers editorialize or give us their opinions.

The article is just fine. Very accurate, even though it leaves out a lot of Juice Newton's hits and accomplishments. I find the article to be very informative and accurate.

  • And just how is "Christmas Needs Love To Be Christmas" a "well-known" song?

Gold/Platinum records[edit]

There seems to be some disagreement over which of Newton's records were given gold and platinum awards. The only valid sources of information for which records achieved gold or platinum status in the US is the RIAA. They have a searchable database on their website - but no other sources can be used as a valid claim (and that would include Juice Newton's own personal website, as it is not an impartial source and there is already some glaring inaccuracies on there).

Whoever keeps changing Juice's singles Gold certifications from 1 million to 500,000, please stop. In 1981 and 1982, when these singles were certified, the Gold award standard by the RIAA was 1 million singles sold. An act had to sell 2 million singles to go Platinum. In the early 1990s, as singles became less popular, RIAA lowered the standard to 500,000 for Gold certification and 1 million for Platinum certification. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Windycityguy2 (talkcontribs) 15:48, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

There seems to be no evidence of that on the RIAA website, but if you can point to a valid and reliable source then it can be changed back. (talk) 22:13, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Here is a link to the info. The RIAA reduced the number of sold singles required for a Gold record in 1989.

Here you go:

The original "Gold Record" awards were presented to artists by their own record companies to publicize the achievement of 1,000,000 sales. The first of these was awarded by RCA to Glenn Miller in February 1942, celebrating 1,200,000 sales of "Chattanooga Choo Choo." Another example of a company award is the gold record awarded to Elvis Presley in 1956 for 1,000,000 sales of the single "Hound Dog". This has led to controversy over how to determine the placings for the biggest selling artists of all time, and claims that some gold albums should be disregarded or even retroactively withdrawn although they were legitimately awarded at the time. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Windycityguy2 (talkcontribs) 20:55, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

Actually, it's now been reworded so a link to the specifics of what made a gold single pre-1990s wont be required. (talk) 17:48, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Birth names still disagree in text and in the box[edit]

So which is correct? Cohen, as in the text, or Newton, as in the box? Songflower (talk) 05:06, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

Portuguese wikipedia entry says Cohen — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:23, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

Origin of "Juice"[edit]

Given the unusual nickname ("Juice") of a person Christianed Judy (Judith?) Kay, it would seem significant to have some information about the origin of the nickname.
