In a brief look at the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry, I was shocked to learn that none of Janet Jackson's works have been inducted. Each year, the Librarian of Congress and their staff select 25 recordings to be inducted based on the cultural significance and impact which the audio recording made. Interestingly enough, the list doesn't have a lot of pop music, but Michael Jackson's Thriller was inducted in 2007. Any American citizen can nominate recordings they feel are of cultural significance. So I ask... what recordings by Ms. Janet are her most impactful? Both albums or recording tracks can be considered. I plan to nominate a few, but would love to hear the forum's thoughts and justificaions.
