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:

by: Helmet
from: Meantime

Picked By: darpino
For: DPD: 009 - Suicide Songs

Helmet's lyrics are open to interpretation. Part of the reason why I think they're great. Every Helmet fan has their own interpretation of them. My ideas about this song are as follows.

How frustrating and depressing would it be never to be recognized for your accomplishments? Smart kid? So what, look at Bill score a touch down. Why can't you be more like your brother? And on and on. I think this song is about never being acknowledged and wanting to die. But not in any old forgetful typical way. No, this song is about knowing you are going to kill yourself but waiting until you can think of the best most unforgettable way to do it. It's about the resolve to commit the act and the dedication to doing it in a way that you'll never be "Unsung" ever again.
