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: The Wedding Present
from: 3 Songs EP/Sea Monsters

Picked By: prokop
For: DPD: 004 - One Word Titles

The Wedding Present are masters at song titles, from sentence long killers (What Did Your Last Servant Die Of?) to pure and simple monosyllabic masters (NO!). Their titles seem to perfectly capture the heart of the song, while the songs themselves leave your heart on the floor. While I choose the B-Side version of corduroy, the Sea Monsters album from which the song originates is comprised entirely of 10 one word title gems.

This guy worships this girl, who leaves him, then later ditches her current beau to come running back to this guy. The guy (OK, me) canít trust her, and wonít hurt his new love. He was simple kid, forced to grow up quick, and she is the same conniving little b*tch, but, oh; to remember the blissful days of youth, probably dressed in corduroy.
