&#8220The Capital Song&#8221

Chicago Magazine editor Jeff Ruby has become a master of mnemonic devices after losing a bet earlier this year. Ruby's been on a bit of a betting binge. The biggest blow came when he and his friend went head to head over who could name the most state capitals in 15 minutes. Jeff tells us he blew Nashville, Bismarck, and Dover, and just plumb forgot about Little Rock. But Jeff's not a quitter. This is Jeff Ruby's “The Capital Song.”

Music Button: Mr. Scruff, "Spandex Man", from the CD Keep It Unreal, (Ninja Tune records)
