y first computer was a second-hand Commodore 64. I had many excellent games, and many of those games had excellent music. I still like to listen to C64 music, and thanks to emulation I can do so without having to hook up my Commodore and rely on deteriorating disks.

With the Internet, I've discovered that not only are there other C64 music fans in the world, but that there are talented musicians who create their own arrangements of C64 songs.

On this page, you can find some songs to download and links to many other resources.

o play C64 music on your computer, you need a player and some SID files. SID files contain sound extracted from C64 disk images. Some player options include sidplay2/w, Deliplayer, or Sidamp (a plugin for Winamp).

The High Voltage SID Collection is a ridiculously vast library of over 30,000 SID files. Many people have worked to enlarge and refine this huge collection, and updates are posted periodically.

If you don't want the entire collection, you can search for individual files with SIDFind or browse the collection at

ollowing are some of my favorite C64 songs and MOD arrangements. The files are taken straight from the HVSC, and require one of the players mentioned above.

The files can be played in Winamp or Deliplayer. For best results with Winamp, you might want to use the Oldsk00l plugin (v0.88, 180k). And if you like the MOD files listed here, then you'll probably like others on my cell7 music page.
