Shouldn't this article be about the song?[edit]

The song dates back to the 1920s. Zazaban 00:45, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

What you say is largely correct - see Sitting on Top of the World. It was first recorded by the Mississippi Sheiks in 1930. This article should be renamed Sittin' on Top of the World (album) so Sittin' on Top of the World can have a redirect to Sitting on Top of the World (i.e., the song).

I swapped this article to a page called Sittin' on Top of the World (album), which is now in place. When I tried to put a re-direct on this page to Sitting on Top of the World (the song) I was stopped from doing so & accused of vandalism (see my response below)

Sittin' on Top of the World[edit]

I transferred an article about the album by LeAnn Rimes from a page called Sittin' on Top of the World to a page called Sittin' on Top of the World (album), to free up 'Sittin' on Top of the World' so it can be used as a re-direct to this song (usually rendered as 'Sittin' on Top of the World' or 'Sitting on Top of the World'). This seems to be sensible as the song, which has numerous cover-versions, is bigger than LeAnn Rimes' album. If I've done this in an incorrect manner, I apologise. No information was deleted; the sum result was that I tried to add one re-direct, so I cannot see how this can be interpreted as vandalism. Ikeshut 01:10, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

I've created Sitting on Top of the World (disambiguation) to try to bring some clarity to this. Ikeshut 01:40, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Can someone with some sort of authority change the information on this article to a re-direct to Sitting on Top of the World. The information at present in this article is repeated on Sittin' on Top of the World (album) (where it belongs). I don't want to do it in case I get accused of vandalism again. Ikeshut 03:46, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

I'm going to move it. I don't have any more authority, but this album shouldn't take precedence over the song. Wait 5 mins --lincalinca 04:00, 18 June 2007 (UTC)
