I'm not quite sure why "One Shining Moment" is such a big fucking deal every year. There are certainly worse songs on the planet, but that's only because those songs are memorably shitty. This one's just blandly saccharine, like a half-assed animated Disney musical. I guess a song and a highlight reel is a nice way to cap off the tournament, but to have some kind of emotional connection to it is just kind of sad. It's the sports equivalent of jerking off to "A Whole New World" in Aladdin.
‘ONE SHINING MOMENT’ STILL NOT COMPELLING
