11.25.09 8 years ago

What do the Beach Boys” “California Girls,” James Brown”s “It”s a Man”s Man”s Man”s World” and the Doors” “Riders on the Storm” have in common? They”re all waltzing into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2010.

In addition to all the artists honored at the Grammy every year, governing body NARAS selects 25 tunes annually to be inducted into the hall for their historical significance. The Grammy Hall of Fame started in 1973. Songs are eligible 25 years after their initial release. The new group brings the total number of songs in the hall up to 851 (no idea where that one came from… they must have inducted 26 one year….)
