“The Wizard of Oz” is one of those rare movies where every element is superbly executed, but perhaps the most memorable aspects of “The Wizard of Oz” are the songs, especially “Over the Rainbow.” Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg’s “Over the Rainbow” helped make “The Wizard of Oz” the cultural phenomenon it is today, 75 years after it was released.
