Boogie shoes forever!
KC & the Sunshine Band's popular disco classic "Boogie Shoes," along with the entire Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, is among the 2012 inductees to the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress. The Library's National Recording Preservation Board (NRPB), is tasked with annually selecting 25 recordings that are "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" and are at least 10 years old.
The selections for the 2012 registry bring the total number of recordings to 375.The selections named to the registry feature a diverse array of spoken-word and musical recordings—representing nearly every musical category—spanning the years 1918-1980.
"I am honored to know that I am part of something as historical as Saturday Night Fever and that a sound that we created back in 1973 has kept the world dancing," said Harry Wayne Casey.
