Well, my planets mnemonic was very similar to one here: My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine Pies.

As for the colours of the rainbow my secondary school always tried to teach us about Roy G Biv but I just used: Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain.

K Ca Na Mg Al Zn Fe Sn Pb - H - Cu - Ag -- fine if you can remember the chemical symbols in the first place. The "activity series" is the same except that calcium and sodium swap places - kinetic rather than thermodynamic effects, and fatal for acronyms.
