Oz (sort of) in Jeopardy!

A quickie today, and not actually about Oz but an important contributor. It was the February 20, 2018 game and two of the categories, next to each other, were March, and Of Dimes. In Of Dimes for $800:

Rob, the defending champion, rang in first and responded, "What is, 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?'" which was wrong. John, the challenger in the middle, then rang in and came closer with, "What is, 'Hey Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?'" which was also wrong. The other challenger, Damien, wisely didn't try. The correct response is "What is 'Brother Can You Spare a Dime?'" and this is Ozzy because Harburg also wrote the lyrics for the songs in The Movie, including "Over the Rainbow".
