isGoodArtistAndTitleMatch failing artist which just has additional 'the' in name

Description

Comparison of 'the deadbeats' and 'deadbeats' not meeting threshold.

1. Should strip out the before checking because applied so inconsistently (esp between discogs and musicbrainz)
2. Maybe the new threshold is a little too high
3. This check is used more for Discogs matches than MusicBrainz ones (because Discogs has no acoustids) so maybe should have different threshold for Discogs then MusicBrainz

Also should ignore plurals when artist matching to allow good matches between variations such as:

"Cliff Bruner & His Texas Wanderers" and"Cliff Bruners Texas Wanderers"
"Cliff Bruner & His Texas Wanderers" and"Cliff Bruner's Texas Wanderers"
