The National Recording Registry (part of the Library of Congress) is billing this year’s list of inductees as the “ultimate stay at home playlist,” so if you need some tunes to get you through quarantine, look no further. You can see all 25 inductees here, but here are some of the highlights to show how wonderfully wide-ranging the list is: – “Mister Rogers Sings 21 Favorite Songs From ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’ ” (album), Fred Rogers (1973) –“Y.M.C.A.” (single), Village People (1978) – “Fiddler on the Roof” (album), original Broadway cast (1964) – WGBH broadcast of the Boston Symphony on the day of the John F. Kennedy assassination, Boston Symphony Orchestra (1963) – “The Chronic” (album), Dr. Dre (1992) – “Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh” (single), Allan Sherman (1963) The Library of Congress selected these titles from over 800 nominations to ensure that they’re preserved for future generations.
