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 song gives me chills and goosebumps.
That part at the end has to be the best thing I ever heard.
One of their best, if you don't find this song absolutely amazing I'm afraid I have to inform you you are soulless.
Haunting as hell
I heard this song on the second episode of SNL!
the first single from "Bridge" was "the Boxer" which came out in the spring (March 26,1969), but the album was released in January 1970, very unusual at the time..usually an album was released, then 2 or 3 singles were released every 4 or 5 months one at time with the strongest songs being released first...so the song "Bridge over troubled Water" was the second 45 released from the album coming out in January of 1970 when the album was released on January 26, 1970.
