This first video is from a cartoon when I was a kid, Anamaniacs. It's Wakko's 50 States and Capitols Song (he also has a song about the presidents and the continents). It's to the tune of Turkey and the Straw. I print off the lyrics for my students so they can sing along at school and home. It is a fast song but once they've watched it a few times then they get the hang of it.
The Tour the US video is a little more "hip" and the kids LOVE to watch the white board drawing! One of the things I like about this video is that he includes a visual to help the students remember each of the states and their capitols.
I will say that my students remember Wakko's song a lot better than the second video but they still learn something from both and that is why I show them both :o)
I hope you have a fantastic Sunday and Happy Mother's Day to all the mommas out there!
