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 2% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 85.3/100, a mean average of 84.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.5/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.5.

Really nice song but it gives me problems.

For the first half of the song I have the Lion Sleeps Tonight buzzing around my head and then I'm mishearing 'calling Jamaica' instead of 'call me when you try to wake her up'. I know its ridiculous but there it is.

It's also too long especially the repetitive chorus line. If only Jamaica had answered his bloody call sooner.

Amazing song. I love when Stipe laughs at his inability to pronounce Dr. Seuss's name correctly.

Good song, but a break in tone in the album. May have worked better if it was released separately?

And one day, I will be able to sing the correct words to that chorus.
