Published: Tuesday 31st Mar 2020 by Rashad

Having stood the test of time as two of Pop music’s most prized offerings from the last 40 years, it comes as no surprise Whitney Houston‘s iconic remake of Dolly Parton‘s Country classic, ‘I Will Always Love You’ (1992), and Queen of Rock N’ Roll Tina Turner‘s royal comeback album, ‘Private Dancer’ (1984), were among the new slew of inductees into the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry.

Details inside:

Designed to “maintain and preserve sound recordings and collections of sound recordings that are culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant,” the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress chooses 25 recordings each year that showcase the range and diversity of American recorded sound heritage “in order to increase preservation awareness.”

Look below to see highlights from this year’s group of inductees:

  1. “Mister Rogers Sings 21 Favorite Songs From ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’ ” (album), Fred Rogers (1973)“Y.M.C.A.” (single), Village People (1978)
  2. “Private Dancer” (album), Tina Turner (1984)
  3. “Ven Conmigo” (album), Selena (1990)
  4. “The Chronic” (album), Dr. Dre (1992)
