The Library of Congress is immortalizing Tammy Wynette's song "Stand By Your Man," "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," and Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" in the National Recording Registry this week. A controversial choice as it is seen by many as a sexist song, the song will now accompany other such great recordings as Abbot and Costello's "Who's on first?" routine and Nirvana's "Nevermind" album.
I think the LoC is attempting to make the single weirdest iTunes playlist of all time. You got you some country, some rock, some spoken word, a crowd favorite, and finally, some music to get freaky to. Now that sounds like a Friday night down at the local roadhouse.
