Tetris - Shmetris.After a Christmas Weekend of listening to me Nephew playing on his Super Mario Brothers game the tune stuck in my head and our group GIGCB tried it for Circassion Circle and was fantastic for this dance.It was after it was posted on Henk's site that the real name of the tune was pointed out to me by a number of musicians. The tune is an exact copy of that issued by the computer game manufacturers. If it has caused writer to spin in his grave or upset you I suggest you take this up with the manufacturers.
Umm, hi, I noticed that the recording by Alan Day labeled "Mario Brothers" is actually Tetris.
It's a Russian folk song, called "Korobushka", or "Travelling Peddler". A dirty song about a Peddler (good thing he's not Jewish) offering goods to a village girl in exchange for out of wedlock sex at night in the field of rye.
Here's a pop version by four hor..., I mean, by Bond
(You may skip the intro and go right to the second half of the clip.)
And here's more like it, with the last verse omitted
For mazochistically inclined, overdone version
More to the feel is this one.
