Help Get Your Favorite Song In The Library of Congress

Here is your chance to help get your favorite song in the Library of Congress. They sent over word that they are currently accepting public nominations for its annual National Recording Registry.

Each year since 2002 the National Recording Preservation Board (NRPB) and members of the public have nominated recordings to the National Registry.

The breadth and depth of nominations received highlights the richness of the nation's audio legacy and underscores the importance of assuring the long-term preservation of that legacy for future generations.

Recordings so far selected by the Library of Congress include: Sophie Tucker, De La Soul, Loretta Lynn, Bill Cosby, Billie Holiday, Bob Dylan, Michael Jackson, the Velvet Underground, Cole Porter and Bing Crosby, among others.

But not voting risks unfortunate choices (i.e. "I saw the sign…" or maybe "Feelings, trying to forget my feelings….")
To nominate a recording to the Registry, e-mail: recregistry@loc.gov
