The Best Songs in Sign Language

American Sign Language is a very expressive language. Songs in sign language are therefore equally expressive and many times are more expressive than their purely vocal versions.

If you’re interested in learning how to sign songs, visit our Interpreting Songs for the Deaf page.

There are so many people that have interpreted songs into ASL and posted their awesome videos for all to see. You can see some of the best songs in ASL for various genre below.

Sir Mix Alot – “I Like Big Butts”

by Sign Language Access

This is a great video, but keep in mind that he’s using ASL as comedy in this video. For example, for the lyric “butt” (as in rear end), he signs “but” (as in the conjunction). Very funny!

  1. Could you please sign The Wedding Song by Noel Paul Stookey? I’m marrying the man of my dreams in July and he is deaf with cochlear implants. I would love to walk down the aisle and sign this to him when we marry. I don’t know how?? Help, please?

  2. Hi all-
    Looking for 2 songs:
    The Promise by When in Rome
    Secret by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark
    I’ve been wanting to learn them in ASL. Can anyone help? Thanks!

  3. I need good video to teach my students ASL for “The Sound of Music” from the musical The Sound of Music. Can anybody help me out with info? Thanks.

  4. If people that write articles cared more about writing great material like you, more readers would read their content. It’s refreshing to find such original content in an otherwise copy-cat world. Thank you so much.

  5. The music video for Hell No by Ingrid Michaelson, performed with Deaf West Theatre (I think?) is so much fun!
