Merry Ex-Mas: Holiday Songs for the Divorced and Soon-to-Be


Songwriters Will Robinson (Alabama’s “There’s No Way”), Mike Reid (Collin Raye’s “In This Life”) and Don Pfrimmer (Diamond Rio’s “Meet in the Middle”) have created a solid Christmas disc of divorce-related parodies of Christmas classics (plus two originals) for those going through a breakup during the holidays. Sung by a string of talented singers, including country artist Joanna Cotten, Christmas tunes have rarely sounded so deliciously sarcastic. “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” becomes “Santa Claus Is Foolin’ Around,” while “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” is given a dramatic piano treatment and revised lyrics to become “Hark the Hell Has Just Begun.” Women cherish their newfound freedom in “Single Gals,” while men get an equal chance to vent against former wives on the cheeky “Frosty My Ex-Wife.” From the jazzy “Let Her Go” to the snide yet cheery “A Lot Like Ex-Mas,” the disc should give a laughter-inducing respite to all the newly unhitched.
