I was playing the song Lotus Flower by Radiohead and I checked the Wikipedia applet looking for more infos about the song. Even though a Wikipedia page of the song exists [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lotus_Flower_(song)], the Wikipedia applet in Amarok showed the page about the actual flower. 
The same happens if you are listening a song from Lotusflower by Prince :)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Play a song whose title has also a generic meaning

Actual Results:  
You get the Wikipedia page of the generic meaning of the words in the song title, not the page of the song, even though the latter exists.

Expected Results:  
The applet should give priority to the Wikipedia page related to the song/album/artist in case it exists, rather than the page related to the generic meaning of the word used as title of the song.

Correctly parse disambiguation pages for songs in the English Wikipedia

The regexp looks wrong, I gues it didn't work at all before...
