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 1% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 94.6/100, a mean average of 93.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 94.8/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.6.

The nineteenth most iconic song of all time according to research, https://www.besteveralbums.com/thechart.php?c=62924.
So, is there Life On Mars? If there's one man that could make us believe, it was David Bowie.
i like the tension is mounting by the line the sailors fighting in the dance hall.
Legendary song, Bowie's best IMO.
Simply a Musical MASTERPIECE!!
Obra-prima do gênio! Fantástica! O começo de Ziggy!
Best song of all time? Not many other contenders I can think of. Wish You Were Here, Blackbird (Alterbridge), Bohemian Rhapsody, Stairway to Heaven, Imagine, Hey Jude, A Day in the Life, Satisfaction.......
I'm probably quite a mean scorer, but this is one of the few that gets 100/100. Absolutely superb song with a glorious piano, great lyrics and his vocal delivery is amazing. Heard him delivering it live - even later in his career - and it was still beautifully delivered. An all time classic here and if it is his response to the My Way lyric thing, it is some response
Easily in the top 10 songs of all times, not to mention Bowie's masterpiece.
