C64 Games with Awesome Music

The Commodore 64 was the first computer I ever owned, and as such it holds a very special place in my heart. It's due partly to the quality of software on the machine, and partly to the great music found within some of these titles. Some of the game musicians of that era were sonic wizards, managing not only to come up with fresh compositions, but also making their creations work within 3 channels of sound.

Great music wasn't just confined to games either. Many demo and standalone tunes were produced for the C64, and you'd never even hear them unless you did some deep investigatoring on the the High Voltage SID Collection (HVSC). If you've any interest in SID tunes and haven't already hooked into this, I recommend you check it out.

The other thing to remember is that these are games with good music, but that doesn't necessarily reflect the amount of non-musical entertainment you'll glean from playing.
