The Evolution Of The Tetris Song From 1987 To Today

The Evolution of the Tetris Song from 1987 to Today

When you think of Tetris, you no doubt hear a song bouncing around your head. This song, known by many as "Type-A" or simply "The Tetris Song", is an arrangement of 1860s Russian folk tune Korobeiniki. And over the years since it appeared in Tetris, it's gotten a new remix in nearly every Tetris game.

Check out the collection below to hear many (though, perhaps not all of the possible) examples of how Korobeiniki has evolved throughout the Tetris series.

    I know it isn't official, but it is good.

    I may be am biased and undoubtedly reckon the 1989 Game Boy version was the best.

      Yeah that was a rollercoaster of, yeah that's what i like to omg what the hell is that. Of course the 2013 had to be a sorta dubstep version. Agree the 1989 was the tetris theme i know and love. Although Power Gloves version of it is pretty cool as well. (
