Oz in Jeopardy!

Yes, they just keep coming. Last Tuesday, April 23, one of the categories in the Double Jeopardy! round was All-Time 100 Songs. These are the top one hundred songs, in the history of Time's editors, since the magazine's founding in 1923. The first four clues were relatively modern (certainly all that I recall becoming hits), but then Laurel, the challenger in the middle, hit the Daily Double. She bet $5000, and was presented with this clue:

Well of course that song would be on there! Laurel, of course, correctly responded, "What is 'Over the Rainbow'?" She would then go on to end the round with the most money, but got the response wrong in Final Jeopardy! and lost the match.
