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 8% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 79.6/100, a mean average of 78.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.7/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.6.

A decent contribution by George Harrison, showing he was developing as a composer.

One of two George Harrison song's on Help! Harrison had only contributed one song, don't bother me(on, with the Beatles album), to the Beatles recording career so far, so the appearance of two of his tracks on this record, as well as two covers, seemed to suggest that Lennon and McCartney's stockpile of songs were drying up. Either way, I need you, is okay, a nice bit of filler, but certainly nothing more than that, and probably wouldn't have made it onto the LP had John and Paul had more quality songs to contribute. Still, it passes a couple of minutes pleasantly enough, although is instantly forgettable. Interestingly, I need you, and, you like me too much(Harrison's other song on Help!), were the only two of George Harrison's Beatles offerings that he didn't bother to mention in his autobiography, I me mine. It seems George didn't think too much of them either.

Decent effort. A bit too simple though.
