Myself, I often used music to memorize things, especially lists. For example, I memorized the list of American presidents to the tune of Happy Birthday, there's another song for all the prepositions, and another one for the order of the books of the Bible.

The cartoon "Animaniacs" actually has several good 'memory' songs, including one for all the US states and capitals.
