Hey retro gamers. Does anyone know where I can get a large collection of old school video game music? I'm looking for the original video game songs but also interested in covers. Thanks!

Also since most of that music is fairly low quality, MIDIs are always an option:

This also has some higher quality tunes:

But with these sites you will need something like Foobar to play them or convert them, as they are the actual game files, ripped.

 

Enjoy! Also, turn off Adblocker if you use it.

Just use winamp and the plugins needed for each format, why make it harder than it needs to be...

I've never used WinAmp, but Foobar was what was pointed out to me.

Not sure about how WinAmp works, but with the Foobar, you can seperate each channel and listen to the music that way. If you want to just hear the Triangle wave you can. Not really sure why it's harder, considering you just click on it and it plays....

I'll have to check all of those sites out myself. I'm on the retro game music kick as of late. Also, it may not count, but if you like classic video game music in 8-bit style or a bit higher, you'll probably like 8bitpeoples.com a bunch of artists make their own music using gameboy's, NES, SNES, and so on and a lot of it is quite cool.

You could check out a band called Powerplay, they perform music from NES games.
