Try singing the first two notes of these tunes to recall these intervals:

Third:  "Camelot" (chorus) (the third note is a perfect fifth as well)

Fourth:  "Here Comes the Bride" (yes, I know, it's Mendelssohn) or "Hark the
Herald Angels Sing"
 
Perfect Fifth:  "Yo-ee-oh" from "The Wizard of Oz" -- you know, the chant that
the guards at the Wicked Witch's castle sing.  :)

Sixth:  "My Bonnie lies over the Ocean" or "It Came Upon the Midnight Clear"

Octave:  "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"

Anybody have others?  

Cheers,
Catelin
