I'd try deleting all the song lists first, re-creating them from the start and checking out that no locale is causing this. I've seen Amarok do idiotic tricks when facing some non-standard characters in file names or id tags, and wouldn't be surprised if that was the problem.

Anyway, if you want to delete it, just read yum's manual and see how you can remove (or better yet, purge) software. Then just
man yum
read the manual page and see how you remove stuff
yum remove amarok
if that was the case; this is just my guess. Man-page tells you more about removing/purging software.
yum install amarok
if that was the case; this is just my guess. Man-page tells you more about installing software.
