This might be a stupid question, but I'm asking any admin how do you rename pages now? I'm really not practical with wikia's new (and terrible updates). I was going to rename Black-Eyed Susan Brown after I've discovered the title of the song is actually "Bye Bye Blues". --- SamStation (talk) 11:53, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

Articles moves can only be done by admins and those with rollback permissions.
The document I have from HensonCo credits it as "Bye Bye Blues" by Hamm and Bennett. However, listening to a few versions of that song and "Black-Eyed Susan Brown" on YouTube, the version in episode 106 sounds more like the latter.
According to the Wikipedia article for BBB, it was first published in 1925. There's no WP article for BESB, but if it indeed was the B side to the more famous "Sweet Georgia Brown", that was also published in 1925. One seems to be inspired by the other, although the melody is slightly different. β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 13:19, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
"Bye Bye Blues" was the B-side of the 1950 release of Brother Bones' version of "Sweet Georgia Brown" on the Harlem Globetrotters' label (as seen here), but turns out they misprinted and erroneously called the song "Black Eyed Susan Brown" (which is completely unrelated), as the description from this video points out.
Here's how the real "Black Eyed Susan Brown" sounds like: 1, 2 3. While "Bye Bye Blues" sounds like this: 1, 2; which is the same as Brother Bones' b-side and the song in the Danceros number
Those Henson documents only comfirm this. The problem really is that I created the page using as my only source the one release of song that mislabels it. --- SamStation (talk) 13:14, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
