"Whoa, Nelly" the phrase predates this record
I came to the entry looking for where the phrase "Whoa, Nelly" originated. I seem to remember "Nelly" being the name of a mule in an old western movie. Seems there needs to be some disambiguation. One entry to address the music, and another to address the phrase and it's origination. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 08:51, 22 October 2010 (UTC)
On the old Roy Rogers TV show, character actor Pat Brady played Roy's sidekick who...instead of riding a horse...drove a jeep called Nelly Bell. Nelly Bell was a rather cantankerous vehicle, and it would sometimes backfire or bounce around on the rough wild west terrain when taking off after the bad guys and Pat’s "Whoa Nelly!" expression became a cultural icon

- The person who "came in here and started changing stuff around" is me, and anyone else who's read Wikipedia:Verifiability, which is official policy. Please cite reliable outside sources rather than other Wikipedia articles, because doing what you just did introduces an inappropriate self-reference. Readers could want to know from where the six million figure originated, and they shouldn't have to search through a very large website to find what they're looking for; the hyperlink should lead to the correct page. Your recent revert removed a citation for the ARIA information. Extraordinary Machine 15:52, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

If the song "Party's Just Begun (Again)" (From the Brokedown Palace: Music from the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is the same as "Party"... maybe that should be mentioned on here. So people don't get confused. I haven't verified it, so I won't add it. Antmusic 21:35, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
"Party's Just Begun (Again)"
I think this article and the "Party's Just Begun (Again)" article need some final clarification. Does anybody actually own the "Party's Just Begun (Again)" track? Can anybody verify the facts stated? I'm really confused about the three version of Party - "Party", the track on Whoa, Nelly!; the track on the "I'm like a Bird" single (which is named "Party (Reprise)"; and "Party's Just Begun (Again)". If you know, please clean up the false facts! Thanks (or if someone knows already, could you please fix it up). User:Ss112 09:18, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
Ok, I now know the difference between "Party" on Whoa, Nelly! and "Party (Reprise)" on the "I'm like a Bird" single, I listened to both and "Party (Reprise)" is longer, etc. All I need to know now is if "Party's Just Begun (Again)" is a remixed/slightly different version of "Party". If so, could someone please change the wording to indicate they are not related. I am not changing it at the moment as I don't know what "Party's Just Begun (Again)" sounds like - I guess I could download it or get the film or soundtrack, but it's no use if someone already knows. Thanks if you can help clear this up. User:Ss112 09:41, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
