    The Library of Congress is adding a batch of new recordings, such as Donna Summer's "I Feel Love," The Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight," Prince's Purple Rain and the Grateful Dead's May 8, 1977, performance at Cornell University. The recordings will be a part of the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry.

    Other new contributions include Bo Diddley's single "Bo Diddley" and its B-side, "I'm a Man," the Booker T. & the MG's single "Green Onions," and the 1967 album Forever Changes by psychedelic rockers Love.

    What is your favorite of these recordings?
