Vlindertjes are Butterflies

The V2 of "Vlindertjes" (Butterflies in english) by Edwin van Santen of 20CC is a nice remake of it's own predecessor and very successful intro-tune. This new version has a lot more tune as is less squeeky... enjoy!

Make my weblog play sounds

If you have your SidPlugin installed (very much recommended plugin for your browser to play C64-tunes (Called SIDs according to the 6581 sound-chip of the Commodore 64)) then you will be able to enjoy some great musics, even in-game sounds from my games.

Tip: you can also listen to a few thousands C64 tunes (stored as .SID files) using the stand-alone SidPlay

Breeze of Diogenes

Breeze of Diogenes was a great demo by X-ample and this tune was created by Thomas Detert in 1989, who also used to create the tunes for all CP-Verlag magazines like Magic Disk, Game On, etc... although I have no idea what the demo plot or FX was about, the tune is still burned into my mind... I guess that's because of the addictive highline...

You can download the demo at Pouet but I didn't try it yet...
