The Truth About Music: Play It Loud

"What's hot, what's not, and whats next in pop music"

The Truth About Melissa

I’m Melissa McCarthy and my life is a never ending soundtrack. Music defines my existence and I’m in love with everything about it- even when it’s really, really terrible. I’m a rock girl who listens to EVERYTHING, and my music taste is even more A.D.D. than I am. Jay-Z is my idol and the only thing I’m more obsessed with than Brand New is the art of making mix tapes.

My dad started me out with one when I was six and I’ve been hooked ever since. I love the way you can pop in an old CD and it takes you back to a particular moment in time. You’re reminded of where you were, what you were doing, and who you were with. For every song on every CD, I have a story to tell and my memories can all be found in my CD collection. So, if we ever have the opportunity to meet, you better make sure you have a mixed CD waiting for me. It’s the only way you can really get to know anyone. I promise you’ll receive a DJ No Clue specialty in return.

I live just outside New York City, in New Jersey, and I’m proud to say I act nothing like those fools on “Jersey Shore” (even if they’re really fun to watch). One day I’ll be as awesomely “uncool” as Chuck Klosterman and I’ll find the world’s most delicious cheeseburger. Until then, I’m excited to share my opinions on The Truth About Music- even when you’re sure I have no clue what I’m talking about. So sit back and enjoy; I assure you it will be a wild ride.
