I know EVERYTHING that I know and you don't know, and don't know what I don't know that you know, so I'll ignore that stuff. Wassup now?

All of Tim Follin's tunes in Bionic Commando/L.e.d. Storm conversions on C64 and Amiga.

Next, the intro tune (but them all really) to Escape from Singe's Castleon the C64

And then, di cuore, the too easily forgotten STAR PAWS ;)

Nice thread :D

+1 for FFVII...I even bought the soundtrack on an import CD :oops:

There's some good C64 stuff out there, particularly the remixes here

And these guys are supposed to be awesome live:

I can see a divide here between consoles and computers.

Did America ever get things like amigas and the ST? or was it a purely european thing. I don think you can surpass the Amiga and c64 soundchips they still sound in fashion now. i wrote my first music on an amiga, Ocatamed FTW!,

If you've never tried it, or heard it, ya'll need to check out the Hybris soundtrack - shooter for Amiga:
