To The After is a song of reversal, of fear, and hope through living in the present while the future is only questions.
Ophelia’s Song is a song of healing, of hope, of saving ourselves while imagining saving literary characters. It only takes a simple slip to drown in despair, but there is light in you.
Ophelia’s Song means so much to The Repressions. This song is inspired by literary characters who meet a tragic end, and imagines offering them compassion, in order to find their own self-worth. We have the strength to be our own shelter. and to pull ourselves out of the darkest water.

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…
