Tetris Theme on Wine Glasses (Wine Glass Tetris)
This is the original Tetris theme or Tetris Soundtrack, played on wine glasses by Dan Newbie.
The name of the Tetris theme song is “Korobeiniki” (Russian: Коробейники, English translation: Peddlers). This theme song is actually a nineteenth-century Russian folk song that tells of a meeting between a peddler and a girl, in which they haggle over the price of goods in a veiled metaphor for courtship. Outside Russia, “Korobeiniki” is widely known because of its appearance in Nintendo’s 1989 version of Tetris and is often referred to as “The Tetris Song” or “The Tetris Theme.”
After arrangements of “Korobeiniki” first appeared in Spectrum Holobyte’s Apple IIgs and Mac versions of Tetris, the song was re-arranged in 1989 by Hirokazu Tanaka as the “Type A” accompaniment in Nintendo’s Game Boy version of Tetris. It has since become closely associated with the game in Western popular culture. In 2008, UGO listed the Tetris theme as the 3rd best videogame music of all time.
