Selections are drawn from all categories of music, representing the diversity and musical excellence for which The Recording Academy is renowned.

“The GRAMMY Hall of Fame represents a proud tribute to the many important recordings that have enriched and even changed our lives and now they are featured in our GRAMMY Museum for all to experience and enjoy,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “Our 2009 inductees span decades and genres — from classical, calypso and country to R&B, soundtracks, and rock and roll — and these masterpieces possess the qualities that make them everlasting representations of how the recording arts are such a vital part of our culture.”

The selections range from 1928’s “I Wanna Be Loved By You” by Helen Kane to the Police’s 1983 album Synchronicity. The soundtrack from the film The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly as well as “Love Theme from The Godfather” are included in this year’s list of inductees.

The GRAMMY Hall Of Fame is unique in that it is open to all genres of music popular as well as specialized forms.
