As a teacher, I wrestle with finding songs that kids know! I find they mostly know Christmas songs and some children's songs, and a few TV themes last the distance.
Minor 3rd - Spiderman
Major 3rd - descending = Beethoven's Fifth Symphony ('Ba-na-na-NA')
perfect 4th - (ascending and descending) - Jeopardy theme
tritone descending - you can use 'shave and a haircut' if you mess with it a little!
perfect fifth descending - Flintstones
Major 6th - 'Dashing through the snow' (from Jingle Bells)
minor 6th - ascending/descending - The Entertainer
Major 7th - descending - 'HAVE YOURself a merry little Christmas' - (from Chestnuts Roasting; also, perfect octave)
minor 7th - ascending "THE LIT- tle Lord Jesus asleep on the hay' (from Away In the Manger)
Suggestions for new songs and changes to our interval song example chart

Thank you for your suggestions. It can be indeed challenging sometimes to find examples that are known universally. We try to cover as many genres and time periods as possible with ours, but it's always a bit difficult with some intervals that aren't as used as P4 or P5 for example.
