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)

The seventh most icon song ever (according to research, see https://www.besteveralbums.com/thechart.php?c=62924).
Not much to be said, simply legendary.
Good Song that Open a great era of Rock
Rolling Stone / BEA: Better than Bohemian Rhapsody
This is just great
This is the song that began music's greatest years.
Love singing along to this.
No need to talk to much about this track. Everyone knows this is one of the best songs ever written, and will be remembered forever.
The Greatest song of all time
The song that blew all possibilities wide open. The track that made everyone else think about what they were doing. After, heartbreak hotel, and, she loves you, like a rolling stone, is the next in line that took pop music to another level. It kicked down so many barriers on so many levels. Suddenly, a song didn't need to be two to three minutes long anymore, opening up the doors to, a whiter shade of pale, and of course, hey Jude. The lyrics didn't need to be about young love between a boy and a girl anymore, opening up another door to, eight miles high, and, strawberry fields forever, and of course, it didn't have to follow a traditional verse-chorus-middle eight structure anymore(again, making, strawberry fields forever, possible). Add on to that Dylan's unconventional voice which made it possible for people such as Jimi Hendrix and Neil Young to become 'pop stars', means that it is no exaggeration to say, like a rolling stone, is arguably the most significant, most important, and most influential single of all time. Whether you think it's the best or not is almost irrelevant. By the way, I think it is.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
