Do you remember times, when composers like Rob Hubbard, Martin Galway, Ben Daglish, Tim Follin, Jeroen Tel, Mark Cooksey, Jonathan Dunn and Chris Huelsbeck did magic on an 8 bit computer called Commodore 64, creating awesome chiptunes? Most of us might have sold this 8-bit micro by now, or it collects dust. But the sound of iconic video game music won't get out of our mind.

If you want to hear a chiptune on your PC or Mac, you'll need a player. For example VLC (Videolan media player), which you might already have installed. It also exists for Android devices. You can create a playlist for convenient SID listening on the way.

This webpage contains a collection of some of my favorite SID tunes, allowing retro gamers to download Commodore 64 music.

Although many companies faded by now I added Wikipedia links to them. It might be interesting to see if they still exist or what ever happened to these vanished.

Commodore 64 SID FAQ
Q:What is this all about?
A:This page contains music files used on the Commodore 64 home computer, which was famous from 1982 to about 1989. Still today people use this computer, either the Original "breadbox", or an emulator (VICE).
Q:So I need this emulator for playing the files on your page?
A:No. The emulator would emulate (behave like) the Commdore 64. You could for example play all the old games with the emulator. But the files on this page don't work with the emulator.
Q:What's your page good for then?
A:If you only want to listen to the C64 music which were used in games and demos back in the 80s you might download files from my page. Not only from the 80s of course. Still nowadays people create great C64 audio files in a quality and with effects you wouldn't believe it'll ever be possible back in the 80s.
Q:How large are these files?
A:They are very small. I think the largest I have is about 30 kbytes.
Q:Okay, I downloaded some of these files, but they don't play.
A:You need a player for your operating system to play them. If you have VLC installed, try open these SID files with it. They should directly play in VLC. Other dedicated SID file players might be available for your operating system. Do a web search to find out.

I took the year, title and copyright dates from the tunes. I don't know if they are correct.

The emulator is NOT for these SID files above!
