The National Recording Registry announced today that the new batch of recordings which “reflect our past, present, and future” also includes Nina Simone’s “Mississippi Goddam,” Curtis Mayfield’s Superfly, Cyndi Lauper’s She’s So Unusual, Earth, Wind & Fire’s “September,” and more, according to the Associated Press.
The Registry will also preserve Robert F. Kennedy’s speech following Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination in 1968. One of last year’s archives included Run-D.M.C.’s Raising Hell, Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours, and Chic’s “Le Freak.”
