Just yesterday, the Library of Congress added 25 songs to the "National Recording Registry"

They picked 25 songs that were deemed to be culturally important enough to, "save America’s recorded sound heritage for future generations".

Included in the list this year were songs nearly 100 years old ("After You've Gone" by Marion Harris) and as recent as 1980.

Works on this year's list included some pop culture touchstones like Simon & Garfunkle's "Sounds of Silence", Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon", and the "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack.

Check out 2013's whole list here.

So if you could choose one song or album to be permanently preserved for future generations, what would it be? Tell us in the comments section!
