Actually, I should hear to FRLG soundtrack without the low-fi GBA sound output. I hope they have good quality samples.

Even on the real GBA it's awesome. Aaaaah the good old days. :3 Fire Red was my first handheld game ever (got it for my 9th bday with a light blue GBA SP :D).

Do you mean a cartridge or an emulator ROM? If it's a cartridge it sucks because some games are hard to find or expensive. (and they more expensive as cartridges fail with the time, although it's rare that a game cart will fail really)

I meant my cartridge...  The first emulator I got were given to me by my father. Snes9x and MAme32.

As far as C64 goes, I quite like this one
<iframe width="640" height="385" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/D9CwsOOjNAo?fs=1&start=" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Although my favorite might be the robocop title song

Also, recently started playing castlevania aria of sorrow on emulator and got hooked on the game's music right from the starting area

Not a big fan of the Robocop one because it seems to miss one important part of Robocop theme for some reasons, which is what I remembered Robocop for, but I like the others quite well.

At least the NES Robocop theme had that part I am talking about, although at the wrong pitch:




That said I kinda like the Atari 8 bit Robocop Demo music version too

I'll be honest I've never heard the original robocop theme, I just really liked that title theme in particular.

Castlevania music is the best :D

Super Meat Boy does have nice chiptune tracks and it seems they're are legit (mainly NES but some are from Game Boy). Here's my favorite, Betus Blues Retro.

Youtube tag does not seem to work. Just url's do sometimes

I dunno about the other tracks, but this does not sound like it could be done on NES or gameboy hardware w/o expansion chips (too many channels).
I like this one as well:

Yeah I don't have any problems seeing Youtube tags either. However remember that you need to use HTTP not HTTPS with Youtube tags. I'll listen to the track later.

Ok I listened to that one first track and it sounds pretty nice and NES-like, even though it has more channels. Could this be doable in Famitracker or a Sega Genesis tracker?
