This final note as we send you into your weekend. You all know this song, right?

From the "Wizard of Oz," of course. Judy Garland, 1939 -- and this weekend, one of the top hits over in the U.K.

It's gonna be on a BBC countdown show on Sunday. Why, you ask? It's not very nice.

An online campaign of anti-Margaret Thatcherites getting people to buy the song to mark the former Prime Minister's death. The BBC says it was a difficult decision, but that they'll play a bit of it on the air.

Mrs. Thatcher's defenders are outraged.

Who wins here? Well Time Warner, for one. The media giant owns the copyright.
