"Waiting" by Breitenbach, full access music video

Here is something a little different with signs and captions for the younger, hipper crowd.



  1. younger, hipper, German crowd :) I think it was signed in DGS. Still pretty cool to see something like this out there!

    1. Hey, there, Dustin! I agree, and I hope it catches on all over the place.

  2. Now I'm curious about the band, in particular why they chose to incorporate signs and captions into their music video?
    Thanks for posting this.

  3. Hi again,
    This website says the video is considered the first barrier free music video in Germany!

  4. Fabulous Husband and I have both lived in Germany back in the 1980's. People are surprised that the music they play and sing in the clubs are mostly British or American. When they see the bands in interviews, people get confused because their English is so terrible. I don't know why there aren't as many German Rock bands, perhaps the language doesn't sound well in rock and roll? I haven't a clue.

    I would like to see more of this from our own country, our own bands, performers, etc. I would love to see American Idol have one night where the contestants have to sign along with the song they are singing.

    When Fabulous Husband saw the signed version of "Bohemian Rhapsody" he said, "I had no idea that's what the song was about. The signs and enactments bring so much more meaning and persepective to it than just the words!" Mind you, he's only learning sign now, but for a hearing person to understand the concept of total communication, WOW!!

    The best communication is total communication.
