Wow how rude :ugh: what if there were small children signing in SEE, and having people fell asleep on them must would have hurt their feeling. *smh*

I like music to be signed in ASL because SEE is just too awkward to watch and I zone out too intensely. SEE is like TV and ASL is like a computer.

That's your issue not mine.

Children r different. They will make errors. This is a thread about songs being signed and I answered honestly. It is the truth. Nothing personal.

ASL is much more poetic to look at if the genre is music. Otherwise, it's pointless because I cannot hear the music to get a true feel of the words.

I supposed I'm the only deaf person who does not care which form of sign language is used in songs rather in Pidgin, Sign Exact English, or ASL. They're all beautiful language. ;)

Growing up hearing, I recognize many songs if signed in PSE and can sometimes follow along in my head (but never aloud). :Oops:

I definitely prefer songs signed in ASL.

I don't have any preference.

It doesn't really matter for me anyways since I don't care much for the lyrics, just the music.
 
practice, practice make it perfect.. cant blame anybody has lose the interests in any kinds of signing for the first time. it would be interesting how much they have learnt so far. :shrug:

I really don't like 99% of the songs you see signed on YouTube. Most of the time it's really bad signers, and people leave comments saying how wonderful they are. There's some good ones on there - DPAN, Keith Wann, B. Storm, and some others - but most of the time it's just some ASL 2 student who learned a song for class and puts it on YouTube and the whole internet says "OH MY GOD GREAT JOB!!" I wish more people made videos with the production quality of the ones I already mentioned. Okay, Keith Wann doesn't do great production quality, but I loved Honky Tonk Badonkadonk. :)

I feel as though ASL is so much more of visual emotional experience where PSE/SEE is more english words (IMO) ...so yes I prefer songs in ASL. Although on youtube anyone can upload videos, some people have no training and really don't know sign well enough to be translating the songs...they think its beautiful and don't realize they are butchering it.
