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.

For: DPD: 013 - Solitude

Poor haunted and taunted Matt Johnson. This could have been a heartbreak track, but I had to save it for this theme. How many times have I been in the same spot as this? Totally, utterly, miserably alone. Sitting in a deep armchair staring at a random spot in the room feeling like the saddest man on earth. Just wallowing in it, the misery of whatever it is that got you here. Depression mounts and you can't stop thinking yourself deeper into the hole. You are sick with despair, you can't move, you are a monument to misery and solitude and you won't get out unless someone or something saves you.
