5 Incredible Covers of the Tetris Theme
We guarantee that you've never heard the Tetris Theme quite like this!
The Tetris Theme is one of the greatest video game songs of all time. It’s catchy, fun, and easily gets stuck in your head. In fact, there’s a good chance you started humming it after reading this sentence.
With millions of Tetris fans around the world, it makes sense that there are quite a few unique musical takes on the Tetris Theme available on YouTube.
Below, we put together a list of five incredible covers of the Tetris Theme that get us in the mood for a Tetris marathon!
Tetris Theme (Metal Cover) by Simon Loveridge
Some musicians cover the Tetris Theme on one instrument, but Simon Loveridge does things a bit differently. He layers together different guitar and bass pieces to create a buttery smooth Tetris cover all his own.
While layering different sections together has become somewhat commonplace on YouTube, it’s nevertheless a skill that takes a while to master (like Tetris). Overall, Simon showcases his love for Tetris and music at the same time, and upon finishing the video, we’re sure you’ll have an itch to hop into a game of Tetris!
Violin and Guitar Duo by Richard Jones
This incredible cover of the Tetris Theme comes courtesy of YouTuber Richard Jones and his piano playing buddy Phil Gregory. Together, they created an incredibly beautiful rendition of the Tetris Theme that feels classically inspired, all while retaining that unmistakable Tetris hook.
It definitely makes us wish we knew violin so we could try our hand at this awesome arrangement!
Fingerstyle Guitar by Hofei
There are quite a few guitar covers of the Tetris Theme on YouTube, but none quite like Hofei’s rendition. We’re huge fans of Hofei’s fingerstyle guitar cover not only for its sound, but because it also reminds us a lot of Tetris. Easy to pick up and play, yet hard to master!
In it, Hofei uses fingerstyle guitar playing to ring out a welcoming version of the Tetris Theme that feels almost vintage in its sound. While listening to this cover, we were taken back to the days when we spent countless hours playing Tetris on the Game Boy.
Classical Piano by Player Piano
It takes years of practice and dedication to master classical piano. While pianist Sonya Belousova makes this phenomenal arrangement of the Tetris Theme seem easy, we’re blown away by her precision on the piano.
Throughout the video, Belousova changes up her style and demonstrates how the Tetris Theme sounds amazing no matter how you play it. Plus, she decks herself out with all kinds of Tetris gear to show viewers how much she loves the game. We can definitely relate!
Tetris Meets Metal by 331Erock
For Tetris fans who love all of the Tetris Theme’s variations, this cover by YouTube guitarist 331Erock is for you! 331Erock is known for creating high-energy covers of everything from video game music to iconic songs from film and television. Garnering over 2.3 million views on YouTube, the “Tetris Meets Metal” video certainly commands attention.
331Erock starts by playing the classic Tetris Theme A before cycling into Theme B and ending with Theme C. Added to these beloved Tetris Themes are a bit of freestyle solo work on the guitar. We can’t help but love this incredible Tetris cover, not only for 331Erock’s guitar prowess, but for how happy he looks while he plays!
These are but a few of the outstanding Tetris Theme covers you’ll find online. We hope you enjoyed listening to them, and if you want to learn more about the music, take a step back in time with our look at the origins of the Tetris Theme!
