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)

For me this is just the gold standard. Simply the greatest song ever written, and the performance here is just timeless. He credits the lyrics partly to the Heavens. And that is warranted.
Love this song and it's melancholy
If I made this song, I would brag all the time about it, perfect song, probably in my top time of all time.
Discovered it way before I became familiar with pop music through Donnie Darko... Never fails to amuse me.
One of the greatest songs ever made!
My favourite song of the 80's, and maybe of all time
