The National Recording Registry just released the list of songs that entered their archive for 2011. Donna Summer, Prince, The Sugarhill Gang, Parliament, Booker T. & The M.G.’s and Bo Diddley all have tunes in the collection from last year’s selection process. It’s interesting that Summer’s “I Feel Love” induction is announced on the day of her funeral and Robert Moog’s birthday. See all of the urban selections to the registry below.
Donna Summer I Feel Love
Prince Purple Rain
Booker T. & The M.G.’s Green Onions
Parliament Mothership Connection
