Recordings from such musical superstars as Whitney Houston, Tina Turner, Dr. Dre, and Glen Campbell are being added to the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress. Billboard notes that this year's list includes Houston's version of the Dolly Parton-penned “I Will Always Love You," plus Campbell's “Wichita Lineman,” The Village People's "Y.M.C.A." and even Allan Sherman's 1963 summer-camp ditty, "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh." Full albums that made the cut include Turner's 1984 smash LP Private Dancer, Dre's 1992 classic The Chronic and Selena's 1990 release Ven Conmigo. The library has selected 25 recordings every year since 2000 to include in the Registry.
