Yes, very cool.

As an aside, "The Tetris Theme" is actually a Russian folk song entitled "Korobeiniki."


Quote:
"Korobeiniki" (Russian: Коробейники, also romanized Korobeyniki) is a famous Russian folk song that tells of an incident between a peddler and a girl 'haggling' over a price, with the details only being said in metaphor.

In Western Culture, the song is primarily known for being used as the "Type A" music in the Game Boy version of Tetris. However, Korobeiniki was written and published in 1861, a full 128 years before Tetris was released on the Game Boy. "Korobeiniki" is translated as "peddlers".

Makes sense as Tetis is from the Soviet Union.

Quote:
Tetris (Russian: Те́трис) is a puzzle video game originally designed and programmed by Alexey Pajitnov in the Soviet Union. It was created on June 6, 1984,[2] while he was working for the Dorodnicyn Computing Centre of the Academy of Science of the USSR in Moscow.[3] He derived its name from the Greek numerical prefix tetra- (all of the game's pieces, known as Tetrominoes, contain four segments) and tennis, Pajitnov's favorite sport.[4][5]

But why a song about a peddler? Why?!
