Lyrics training is a fantastic tool to learn the lyrics of the song and at the same time practice your english singing or writing those words you never do when singing. You can use You Tube searching the songs with the lyrics but this has a different challege as soon as you write the words you listen.
Here there are some examples to learn past tense with different songs. On the application or on the website first you choose or look for the song you want to work and if this song exists in the server CONGRATULATIONS because you can work with it, practice it in class or train as a fantastic Karaoke.
The second step is choosing your level depending on the amount of words your will guess. And once you clic on start everything works really well.
I leave some examples with the link but once you start playing is very easy to see the functions, the score you get. If you log in with a email account you get points or score in a different way and this is interesting to revise or check the gallery of videos you worked.
Examples using Past Tense.
You open the website and then you choose your song. The idea es to read first the karaoke version if the lyrics are complex, then with the students we practice the level or they can choose the level. The link below is just for the Karaoke version of a song of Kate Perry.
Apart from teaching Past Simple, with verbs met, got, planned, had, made, said, etc. you can also teach would for talking about future from a time in the past (I would make you stay, I would be your girl).

And this link is to choose the level after they hear the song.

Other examples I worked in class.
