BBC Bosses: ‘Ding-Dong! The Witch is Dead’ will not be played in full



BBC Bosses have decided not to play the whole song if it enters the UK Official Singles Chart Top 40 this Sunday.

Instead they will play a short clip of the 51 seconds long track during a news bulletin.

The song is currently set to enter at 3 in the charts.


Judy Garland’s version of ‘Ding-Dong! The Witch is Dead’ from the film The Wizard of Oz has re-entered the charts after the death of Baroness Thatcher yesterday morning.

This is after many people took to social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter and used the phrase to show their joy at the news of the death of the divisive political leader.

An internet campaign set up several years ago is pushing for sales of the song and has resulted in the track reaching No. 1 in Amazon’s MP3 music store and iTunes.

Baroness Thatcher, the UK’s first and only female prime minister, died at the Ritz hotel in London on the 8th April after suffering a stroke.

The song is set to enter the Official Singles Chart Top 40 which will be announced on Sunday.

She was remarkable, but sadly, for all the wrong reasons.
