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 3% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 83.4/100, a mean average of 82.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.6/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.6.

Another hit single. Another great track. But how good would this album had been without the inclusion of the singles.

The Beatles’ first single was an early Lennon-McCartney composition from 1958, when Paul was just 16, although it wasn’t recorded by the group for another four years. Although not the most popular or memorable song on the album, it was instrumental in establishing the Beatles as a songwriting force at a time when they were mostly known for covering other artists. Where would the Beatles be if it weren’t for this important first step?

They are singing in empty fifths.

Think about it: they are singing in empty fifths in a first single in 1963.

They were huge since day one. Anyone with knowledge on what was usual on pop music at that time will realize this sounds different from anything that was around back there. That's why they made such a huge impact from the very begining. They were different.

The Beatles first single in truth isn't much of a song, lyrically or musically. John Lennon's excellent harmonica work though lifts the song out of the ordinary to become something much more interesting and enjoyable. Not bad for a first single, but fortunately for us and foe them the best was yet to come.

Harmonica melody is nice, but overall this song tends to be overrated due to its "first Beatles single" status.

I've always felt that this song was overrated. It's kind of a bluesy pre-rock number that drags a bit. Not really single material.

Definitely not their best work...but it was early.
