Already reported elsewhere: Thatcher's death is good for Stothart & Arlen's legacies:

Judy Garland's Ding Dong the Witch is Dead races up charts after Margaret Thatcher's death

Couldn't happen to a nicer Prime Minister.

You could almost hear the squirming on BBC Radio 1 when they announced the midweek chart yesterday. Normally easy going presenters suddenly adopted clipped 1975 BBC English to announce that, due to an online campaign, 'a song with The Wizard of Oz' was at number 10.

Well it's number one on iTunes, and I imagine it's quite likely to be number one in the official chart at the end of the week.

Unless they fix it like they did with God Save the Queen.

That's three more farts than anybody gave for your made-up awards show.

Insofar as celebrities make political statements every day, if one were to justify political threads in the TV/media forum on that basis, then this is essentially just another TNZ now.

The BBC has decided that they won't play the full song, just a small clip: "The BBC finds this campaign distasteful but does not believe the record should be banned. On Sunday, the Radio 1 Chart Show will contain a news item explaining why the song is in the charts during which a short clip will be played as it has been in some of our news programmes."

A telling phrase, the same one used when banning the speech of Sinn Fein representatives from being broadcast on the Beeb. Which ended up just being a nice boost for the VO actors. State subsidy!

I see there's some feeble 'answer' effort in a song called (I'm In Love With) Margaret Thatcher by an outfit called The Notsensibles:

I'm in love with Margaret Thatcher
I'm in love with Margaret Thatcher
I'm in love ...with Maggie T
I'm in love with Margaret Thatcher
I'm in love with Margaret Thatcher
I'm in love ...with Maggie T

Oh Margaret Thatcher is so sexy
She's the girl for you and me
I go red when she's on the telly
'Cos I think she fancies me

I suspect she might be happier with 'Ding Dong'.
