Kobi LaCroix The Peddler: A Half-Assed Translation This song contains language that may be objectionable to some listeners and may not be suitable for radio broadcast.

Apparently, the song which most of us know as the "Tetris Song" is actually based on a Russian folk tune called "Korobeiniki", or "The Peddler".

This was the only detail I bothered to learn.

This song is now available on the following CDs:

Awesome! Especially the surf rock solo. You should get a dealer table at MarsCon and sell completely unrelated random crap from your basement.

This was really fantastic. You did a great job on the high notes, too. I hope to hear more soon! Also, I must say that I like my women the way I like my cotton candy...covered in bees.

Great song and the Tetris tune goes really well with this.

I agree with the others who believe the Marscon audience would be amazed by your work.

Very creative and clever work. I agree the surf guitar solo totally rocks.

I have a particular love of neo-classic parodies. Especially the familiar ones (Im classically trained by Saturday Morning Cartoons). More please.

You know, I just now noticed the reference to Gilbert's Bucket of Shoes in this. DERP!!!!
