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:

Everybody Loves Me But You
by: Juliana Hatfield
from: Hey Babe

Picked By: darpino
For: DPD: 065 - Unrequited Love

I'm not much of a Hatfield fan now, but when she hit the scene in 1992 I was totally in friggin love. Her sugar-sweet innocence and virgin status added with her hurt feelings pout and perfect hair combined to completely capture my heart senior year. She seemed just weird yet pure enough that back then she was the perfect crush for me.

When I got Hey Babe and heard this opening track the image on the cover combined with her unrequited love lyrics put the spell on me. I don't know how many nights I listened to this album that summer, occasionally looking at the cover, and imaging meeting Juliana Hatfield after some concert and she and I realizing that we were meant to be.

This song is a perfect pop gem with a lot of memories attached. Definitely DPD worthy.
