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)

one of the happiest songs i've heard
Listen to "I'm gonna love you too" by Buddy Holly and then come back to this song. The melody of the verse sounds suspiciously similar. Still a cool song though.
Decent track with a nice drive :)
I always loved how Clash incorporated Jamaican influences to their music. Here, apart from the obvious musical elements, we get a satyrical view of a typical English rudeboy. Great.
you been drinking brew for breakfast
Another solid song
The Clash have proven themselves to be very interesting. From rock to punk to reggae, what a combination.
Great duet. Very reggae.
