I don't know if I could take too many cell phone ringtones! Though I myself have taught a couple of enterprising students the Nokia bird and the Motorola "Are you there?" tone.

I like the Pirates suggestion. That certainly captured mine's attention at age 11-12. [/b]
Also Beethoven's Bagatelles can appeal.

If both teacher and student have a sense of rhythm and the student likes (or is open to) a latin sound there is some very fun latin (dance) music out there.

You could start with something easy like the "Rumba" duet from Gerard Hengeveld (10 Rythmical Dances) to start getting the hang of it.

Rachmaninoff G-minor prelude! Technical, challenging, aggressive (can you say Testosterone?)
flashy, macho....
