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 83.0/100, a mean average of 81.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.2/100. The standard deviation for this track is 13.9.

Catchy I suppose but it feels like a club/pub band.

I really don't understand the low rating on this song. It's just a fun, catchy tune!

Dire Straits suffer from the same thing as Prefab Sprout and Was not Was - their worst song gets the most airplay.

Catchy song, but unlike most other Knopfler songs, this one does not grow on you.

The keyboards are catchy but I'm not sure how I feel about the rest of the song.

I don't know, I like the keyboards. I've actually heard this song on the radio quite a few times.
