The Witch Is Dead hits UK charts

The death of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has sent a 74-year-old song, Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead, flying into the UK charts, figures showed. The song from the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz was top of Amazon’s most downloaded chart on Wednesday after a social media campaign to promote the upbeat track as a way for detractors to “celebrate” the death of Britain’s most divisive postwar leader.
