At the end of the NCAA Tournament, David Barrett's "One Shining Moment" plays with a montage of some of the tournaments biggest moments and heartbreaks. But is the 1987 song a little too cheesy? Many think the song is outdated, and little too corny for today's tournament. Still, many tune in to see an impressive montage with a classic song that plays after every tournament for over 30 years.

There are a lot of great things from the 80s, but a lot of it should stay in the 80s. "One Shining Moment" is one of them.

Like the Members Only jackets, David Barrett's ode to college basketball belongs in the past, with its archaic arrangement and way-too-corny lyrics. Sports is all about evolution and holding on to this relic is holding the NCAA Tournament back. Give younger artists a chance to shine instead and allow modern artists to leave their mark on the game with a song of their own. It's time to retire "One Shining Moment."

"One Shining Moment" is as part of the NCAA Tournament as much as the balls that are used to play it. For the last 30-plus years, the song has played with a montage of the best tournament moments. It's the perfect cap to an exciting tournament season. Other than the amazing plays these young athletes perform, "One Shining Moment" is the best part of the tournament!
