Lauryn Hill’s debut solo album, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” is being immortalized as part of the Library of Congress. The 1998 album is among the 25 pieces that have been added to the National Recording Registry for preservation because of their cultural, historical or aesthetic importance in American life. The Registry calls Hill’s album a “work of honesty” that blends sounds of soul, R&B, rap and reggae. Among the other works joining the Registry this year are the Righteous Brothers’ song “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling,” The Doors’ debut album and Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me.”

Among the 425 other works in the National Recording Registry are the Sugarhill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight,” De La Soul’s album “3 Feet High and Rising,” Tupac’s song “Dear Mama,” and Public Enemy’s “Fear of a Black Planet.”
