After the death of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, a Twitter and online campaign to promote “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead” a song from the 1939 movie Wizard of Oz sung by Judy Garland, has made it to #1 on Amazon chart and #6 on iTunes…also showing up on the chart is a version by Ella Fitgerald. It has yet to break into the Billboard top 40, but it is climbing and currently at #54!!
Of course we have a wonderful Ding Dong tee in Union Jack Red and Blue just for the occasion in our Wizard of Oz section!
