OCR02457 - Tetris (GB) 'Tetris Plays You'

Recommended Posts

This is kind of awesome. Don't know how I missed it on April Fools... wait, yeah I do, I was on the road. Fortunately you all reposted it here, 'cause it's great. Nice almost-bad-but-not-quite-bad singing, all around.

This was so unique and fun! What a bizarre idea - and yet shockingly fun to listen to. Props to the vocalists who stepped up and made this happen! I find myself listening to it throughout the day...

Genius!

This song matches the clever lyrics of Lover Reef (another mega-collab featuring some of the same artists), and then raises the game by imbuing and delivering them with character... or maybe caricature?

Love it.

Was anyone else reminded of Hyadain - http://ocremix.org/artist/9076/hyadain - ?

This almost felt like an English version of an arrangement he might do... albeit slightly less on crack, and of course he'd do all of the voices himself :-D Still, to me it had some of the same crazy brilliance, vocal flexibility, & contextual humor.

Not something I was keeping in mind when we made this, but certainly the same spirit. :)

This was quite amusing! Sounds like a theme song for a tetris parody cartoon. The guy at 1:12 sounds like Sid from ice age lol. Good work guys!

Wow, this makes me very happy. Such a creative idea and brilliantly executed. The unique voices really make this one shine.

Someone needs to make an animated short for this.

Thanks for all the comments guys! Yes, Jill (L) does speak fluent French. I, on the other hand, do not speak fluent Russian. Hard to tell, I know.

Awww man, I hate it when this happens. Someone tries a vocal arrangement and then another covers the same song. Now whenever I think of the tetris theme, I'm going to have 2 conflicting sets of lyrics playing in my head. The other version that I know is from The Amazing Brando, who also took on the personification of the different shaped blocks.

Now, both versions are good, but I just wanted you all to know how conflicted this makes me feel.

:) I know this was part of the April Fools Day thing. Did any of the other remixes make it to the complete stage?

The April Fools page doesn't have any working links. :)

This song is sooo fun to listen to btw. :D

This is ridiculously funny. I have to agree with some of the other reviews, the whole thing does sound kinda like a Hyadain take on the whole Tetris song with the different voices, and now I have the characters stuck in my head when I play the game. Oy. It's always great to hear a ReMix with a good sense of humor and sounds great at the same time.

Since I'm Russian, I can say that this is super goofy, considering the sense of original lyrics. Yeah, orginal Korobeiniki has lyrics. But still, this is genius and catchy take on such a popular tune. One of my favourite ReMixes of Korobeiniki.

I saw the artist lineup, yet the mix still caught me off-guard. Great stuff, reminds me joke music can use vocals too (guilty of many joke tracks). Novelty aside, some great vocal performances and a fun backing.
