when i try to upload another song its telling me that "a file by that name already exists, change file name"
I dont understand, does that mean someone else has a song by this name?
all the details are the same as a previous song i uploaded but with a different song title.

The mp3 itself may still contain the duplicate info. Try renaming the mp3 in the tag as well as the filename.

Noize is right; you may also find it as an "ID3 Tag" which is what they like to call it in various audio programs. To see if the audio files info is the same as another file, right click the file (the audio file itself) and go to properties, then go the the tab on the far right. Check these names/values to makes sure they're not the same as the one you uploaded before.
