Question of the Day: Recordings for the Library of Congress


Today the Library of Congress announces this year's additions to its National Recording Registry. Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son," Jeff Buckley's cover of the Leonard Cohen song "Hallelujah" and Isaac Hayes' "Theme from Shaft" are among the 25 recordings to be preserved for future generations. Recordings must be "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" and be at least 10 years old. If you were to pick a song to add, what would it be? Let us know in the comments below.

Here's what we played:

Robbie Robertson "The Sound Is Fading"

Buffalo Springfield "For What It's Worth"

John Lennon "Imagine"

Frank Sinatra "New York, New York"
