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:

Think and Act
by: Curve
from: Doppelganger

Picked By: darpino
For: DPD: 005 - Songs with Female Vocals

For me, Toni Halliday is the greatest female vocalist in the world. It would be impossible for me to pick one Curve song over another. Ultimately every Curve song is as near to perfection as a song can get. Halliday's voice is deep and strong, but can also be soothing and seductive. More often than not it hits all these tones and more within a single song. The only way I could truly represent Curve here would be to go back to the beginning and pick one of the first Curve songs I ever heard. This song is off their first full-length album and represents it well. "Think and Act"'s themes of self-loathing, self-pity and of yearning to find someone apathetic enough to understand fill the album. "Doppelganger" blew my young teenage mind by exposing the hopes and frequent failures associated with real love and the seemingly futile search to find it.
