“Ding-Dong! The Witch Is Dead”. In 2013, following the death of former prime minister Margaret Thatcher on 8 April, anti-Thatcher sentiment prompted campaigns on social media networks to bring Ella Fitzgerald’s version of the song to number 1 in the UK Singles Chart. By 9 April the campaign instead targeted Garland’s version of the song after The Official Chart Company confirmed its eligibility.It had reached number 2 in the iTunes UK download chart 24 hours after her death,and had reached number 1 in the same chart by the end of the day. “Ding-Dong! The Witch Is Dead” is the centrepiece of several individual songs in an extended set-piece performed by the Munchkin characters, Glinda (Billie Burke) and Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland) in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.
