Back in the Commodore 64’s heyday, the lengthy tape loading times meant that computer games enthusiasts needed something to nod their heads and tap their feet to as their screens flickered with intro screens. Thus, the ‘loader’ track was born! Join me as I check out some SID chip jams from games old and new (three tracks on the playlist are from games released this decade!) along with some loading tunes from the Sharp X68000, Amiga, and Atari ST.
