Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some tracks can have several thousand ratings)

This track is rated in the top 10% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 78.9/100, a mean average of 78.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.0/100. The standard deviation for this track is 13.0.

George Martin's addition makes it a passable little song. GM's early influence; shape of things to come.

This one feels a bit more like a filler track, but it's still pretty enjoyable. It was one of John and Paul's first attempts at a ballad and was by Paul's own admission "just a job, you could have called us hacks, hacking out a song for someone." So I guess there isn't anything all that special here, although I do really like the piano George Martin adds in the bridge.

Decent jolly song. I wish they made those cool piano bits more central to the song!

A slight effort which even Helen Shapiro turned down when she had the opportunity to record it. It's okay, a stepping stone song really, one Lennon and McCartney had to get past in order for them to write better songs. Filler then, but enjoyable enough.

An early effort, not particularly great, but OK.
