dpd project [Full List of Discs] [FAQ] [Find A Song or Band] [Message Board]      

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:

New Year's Day
by: U2
from: War

Picked By: darpino
For: DPD: 020 - After 19 Discs I Can't Believe These Guys Haven't Made It!

In the beginning U2 wrote some of the best most passionate Pop music of the 80's. In the 90's they started exploring and playing around with what a band could get away with inside a Pop song structure. While I haven't liked everything U2 have done over the past 20 years, I do think they rocked in the early 80's and I respect them for trying to evolve Pop in the 90's. I'm surprised they haven't made a DPD disc yet because I really like their failed Pop experiments and I love their early stuff. I'd go out on a limb and say U2 are probably the best Pop band around. For this disc I'm going with one of their early best.
