Hit Writers Pen Holiday Parody Album, Merry Ex-Mas

Songwriters Will Robinson, Mike Reid and Don Pfrimmer have just released Merry Ex-Mas: Holiday Songs For the Divorced and Soon To Be, a tongue in cheek collection of eight Christmas parodies and two original new holiday songs. The ten tracks are performed by a group called the Irreconcilables, which includes Joanna Cotten, Perry Danos, Fred Knobloch, Paige Bainbridge, Danger Will, Fred Bogert and Oscar Franks. Songs on the album include titles such as “Frosty My Ex-Wife,” “Santa Claus Is Foolin’ Around,” “The Twelve Days of Christmas (My True Love Took From Me),” and “Hark The Hell Has Just Begun.”

Robinson, who co-wrote all of the songs with Reid and Pfrimmer, offers an explanation: “sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying.”  Robinson noted the concept for this CD began back in 2002, when he was going through a divorce around Christmas time, and Reid and Pfrimmer were trying to keep his sprits up.
