I was just reading @Mary Beth's suggestion that @Kara of Canada listen to I Heard It Through The Grapevine (presumably Marvin Gaye, not CCR?) and it occurred to me that we might have fun with a song thread.  What song was the first that you heard well with your CI?  Mine was "Things Have Changed" by Bob Dylan.  But a friend's first clear CI song was Fogarty's "Centerfield" and a couple of weeks ago I heard that one too, clear and wonderful.  It was like an anthem. 

The sun came out today!

Hmmmmm not sure what was the first clear song but I definitely know that the Grammy 2016 album was the first album that I learned the words to just by listening!

I was thinking of the Marvin Gaye version. Smile.  The true stereo effects start right at the beginning.

The Rose. Bette Midler. Was one of my first.

Interesting, @Kara of Canada - I had much more difficulty with high-pitched women's voices.

Then I had to listen to songs about four or five times before they made any sense. With the lyrics as well. I would listen repeatedly. It can be very tricky. But if you want it bad enough it can happen.

I agree with @Kara of Canada

Music with our CIs is a journey as well.  I am over three years since activation and still experiencing improvements in musical pitch.

After 4 weeks I am going to listen to Susan Boyle singing wild horses at least twice a day until the 'squelch ' goes away. Strange most voices are squelchy but Joan Sutherland, Kathleen battle are almost perfect. 

Music is going to be tough.

For me I believe it was Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley. I was driving home from work and turned on the radio, couldn't make out any song until that started playing! That was the first month of activation I think.

Hi Jewel

I am not a user of spotify but I managed the first few bars of Rick. For me I can hear the words but what a lovely squelch sound .

You must be doing very well.

Great

Peter
