New Video – Ginger Dizzy!

Ginger Dizzy is an important song for The Repressions, as it tends to make audiences happy and sing along, which is one of the most meaningful things that music can do.  It is also the song that inspired the “vaudeville” part of The Repressions’ style. There are quite a few versions out there, Barbara and Ben, just Barbara, just Nate, the recorded version with Barbara and Nate, but this live performance captured this week actually features all three Repressions… the new definitive version…

Sometimes it is better, or maybe a little necessary,  to be hazy and out of it, rather than sad… of only for a little while… Confusion you can choose is better than the blues…
