The Recording Academy has just announced the names of the works that have been added to the Grammy Hall of Fame. This year, Latin music has made it to the list with an iconic track recorded in 1935 by the legendary King of Tango Carlos Gardel. The name of the new entry is "El Dia Que Me Quieras," one of the most famous Tango songs ever produced in history.

Besides Gardel's memorable track, the list features celebrated singles and albums such as Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York," Billy Joel's "Piano Man," James Brown's "I Got You (I Feel Good)" and the self-titled debut albums produced by Elton John and Whitney Houston.

With the new entries, the Hall's collection holds now 933 works. Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy, made the announcement stating "this latest round of inducted recordings helps celebrate 40 years of highlighting diversity and recording excellence, and acknowledges both singles and album recordings of all genres at least 25 years old that exhibit qualitative or historical significance." Carlos Gardel's "El Dia Que Me Quieras" definitely encompasses that idea.
