Welcome to DPD!

The DPD Project is a thematic mix-CD project created by music geeks and best friends Chris Diamond, Chris Prokop, and Michael Darpino.

Each CD in the project has a theme that ties the songs on it together. For every theme we each pick five songs that we feel best represent it. The collected fifteen songs are then mixed together in alternating order based on our last names. The songs that end up on DPD are meant to be the very best songs for their particular theme.

We write liner notes for each song to explain why we picked it for that theme. The project has grown into a sort of musical memoir over the years since music has been and still is such a huge part of our lives.

Random DPD Pick:

I've Seen It All (feat. Thom Yorke)
by: Bjork
from: Dancer in the Dark: Soundtrack

Picked By: darpino
For: DPD: 067 - Duets

I am not a big fan of straight up duets. Minimal instrumentation, two vocalists deuling or highlighting each other. I find most duets rather boring. However this Bjork/Thom Yorke collaboration, while it fits the above description exactly, somehow manages to fill me with all kinds of musical glee.

The lyrics of this song use the strengths of these two great singers perfectly. Bjork's oddness sparring with Thom Yorke's soul-crushing nay-saying is absolutely brilliant.

B- "What about China? Have you seen the Great wall?"

TY - "All walls are gray if the roof doesn't fall."
