How a song from THE WIZARD OF OZ has hindered the mythification of Margaret Thatcher.

The above article is quite interesting, though I wonder what would have occurred if, say, a song written during the Margaret Thatcher era (implicitly/explicitly about Thatcher and her policies) had been chosen instead to climb the UK charts.

Bonus irony: For a few minutes (CORRECTION: only five seconds), the ever-current BBC Radio One has to play a hit song from 1939--a supreme rarity.
