25 “New” Records In The Library Of Congress

Every so often, the Library Of Congress adds songs to the National Recording Registry.  Forget the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame or the GRAMMYs!  This is when you know you’ve made it as a musician.  I think it goes hand-in-hand with the title “National Treasure.”

25 recordings were added yesterday.  The one that instantly jumps out is “I Feel Love” from Donna Summer.  Of course, I had to wonder if it’s due to her passing last week.  After a little digging, I found that wasn’t the case at all.  It was selected weeks ago.

I was happy to see Bo Diddley added, too.  You gotta love someone with the guts to name a song after themselves.

“Rapper’s Delight” from the Sugar Hill Gang went in as well.  I sure hope they used the full version.  I think it clocks in at 4 and a half hours!

Donna Summer isn’t the only artist included who recently died.  Donald “Duck” Dunn was part of Booker T. & The MG’s for “Green Onions.”  Just like the old Prego commercial, it’s in there!

One more?  OK, sure!  Who doesn’t enjoy Dolly Parton?  She’s STILL adorable.  “Coat Of Many Colors” got the nod.
