Title says it, CBS is going back to Luther Vandross' version of One Shining Moment.
Semi OT- CBS going back to Luther Vandross' version of One Shining Moment
One Shining Moment sucks.
This is the worst comment I've ever read on this site.
+1 to you.
Within the past week someone posted a thread saying Gus Johnson = Pam Ward.
And then in the comment section he talked about how much he liked Jim Nance.
I hate you for not liking One Shining Moment.
Luther Vandross didn't do anything that "sucks". Even putting "One Shining Moment" on will get you at least a back-rub from the Mrs. and/or random strange at the Applebee's bar.
...who gives you the upvote. Love the yearly montage, so I'll watch every year anyway, but the song itself could be way better. Luther barely saves a completely over-the-top piece of crap because he's that awesome.
Well, you'd know from suck.
The other version was complete crap !!!!!!
Wasn't there an unverified voracity that linked to a criticism of "One Shining Moment?"
But it was NOT the Luther Vandross recording.
The Teddy pendergrass version dominates all others.
By the guy who wrote it, from (State of) Michigan, was the best.
But yes, last Year's was an abortion.
The guy who wrote it - David Barrett lives in Ann Arbor and is a big UM fan. I got to hang out in the recording studio when they mixed his version.
Good. The Jennifer Hudson version was terrible. The fact that Luther is great and the recording is older (adding to the cheese factor of a rather cheesy song) makes it work.
What a year this one was...I hope to be watching this next April on a cool Monday evening after Johnny B takes us through the Big Dance unblemished!! GO BLUE!!! SMOTZ!!!!!!!
about fucking time
As long as they show the Stu Douglass two hand flush on the break, I don't give a shit if Roseanne Barr is singing it.
The Stu Douglass two handed flush was pretty awesome, but hearing Roseanne Barr sing anything is enough for me to chug a bottle of Drano.
Nothing against Jennifer Hudson's version... but hers doesn't compare to Luther Vandross'.
Rest In Peace LV!!!!!!
Still prefer when they used the Kenny Loggins song "This is it" as the theme for the tournament......
