Your Christmas Rock CD Compilation

Good day. Because I can not get to all of you a with patented Lono Christmas Rock 2005® CD, I am going to let you in on a set list. I have been collecting and compiling Christmas rock for about five years now, and have it down to a satisfying and diverse 15 songs or so. So, let's begin.

1. Happy Xmas, War is Over - John Lennon

2. Wish I had a River - Joni Mitchell

3. Feliz Navidad - Big Head Todd & the Monsters

4. 12 days of Christmas - Bob & Doug McKenzie

5. Deck the Halls - Ottmar Liebert

6. Father Christmas - the Kinks

7. Santa Clause is Coming to Town - Bruce Springsteen & the E St band

8. Baby Please Come Home - U2

9. The Chanuka song - Adam Sandler

10. Santa Baby - Louis Armstrong with Earha Kitt

11. Let me Sleep, it's Christmas Time - Pearl Jam

12. Blue Christmas - Elvis

13. The Piano has been Drinking - Tom Waits

14. Do they know it's Christmas - Band Aid

14. Run Rudolph Run - Chuck Berry

15. Linus & Lucy - Vince Guaraldi

Obviously this isn't all inclusive. I have about 80 files of various christmas-ness. This list is meant to be diverse. There is jazz, a bit of classical, an homage to our Jewish friends, and of course Elvis. Certainly add you own ideas at the bottom. The order of the playlist is pretty flexible, with the exception of #1 and #2. Those have to be there. Trust me.

The variations just on this list are nearly infinite. There are about 8 different rock and roll versions of 'Run Rudolph Run', but I find Berry's to be the definitive one. Elvis has about three different Christmas CDs on the market (trust me, I have two of them), and frankly almost any Elvis Xmas song can be subbed in. This was the old pilled up and wasted Elvis, so I find them all pretty amusing. As for the Band Aid song, I am referring only to the first one. There are at least 3 different variations on the Sandler 'Chanuka song' as he updates it every few years. You will have a tough time finding that Big Head Todd version of Feliz Navidad, but it is worth looking for. I got it as a mailer from my friendly local Clear Channel outlet here in Denver (Big Head Todd is from Denver, see) from KBCO last year. The Tom Waits song? True, it has nothing to do with Christmas technically. However, give it a listen and tell me it doesn't remind me of drinking with your relatives in some bizarro environment.

The Eatha Kitt 'Santa Baby' is certainly not rock, but is probably the best Christmas song ever written. You are forbidden from making a holiday compilation and not using that track.

In closing, I should warn you. There is a glut of bad Christmas stuff out there. Here is your first hint, anytime any band for any reason makes an entire Christmas CD - stay away! Only Elvis and the Peanuts gang are allowed to be that self indulgent. The NOW folks make Christmas Cds, but are always more pop than rock.

Feel free to make additions or deletions... and leave your comments below. Just kidding. This list is infallible, stop trying to think for yourselves.

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
