The score by composer Frederick Loewe and lyricist Alan Jay Lerner includes such standards as "Almost Like Being in Love," "The Heather on the Hill," "Waitin' for My Dearie" and "There But for You Go I."

The Grammy Hall of Fame is part of The Recording Academy's continuing mission to preserve and celebrate music. Established by The Academy's National Trustees in 1973, the Grammy Hall of Fame was created to honor recordings of lasting qualitative or historical significance that are at least 25 years old. Recordings are reviewed annually by a special member committee of eminent and knowledgeable professionals from all branches of the recording arts, and final approval is made by The Recording Academy Trustees. With these 30 new titles, the list currently totals 881 and is displayed at The Grammy Museum.
The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on Feb. 13, 2011, at 8 PM ET/PT on CBS. Visit www.grammy.com.
