My Favorite SID Tunes by JCH

This is page 5. See also page 1, page 2, page 3, page 4 and page 6.

Quick Blast
1988 2000 A.D.
Made in my old player where the composition was made in Aegis Sonix on the Amiga.

Rain Funk
1989 Vibrants
There are interesting changes at 1:21 and a solo at 4:32.

Real “Good”
1989 Vibrants
There are interesting changes at 3:37 and 4:55.

Real “Shit”
1989 Vibrants
Extracted from my own Cause I Love Her So (at 0:30) and then extended a bit.

Revenge
1990 Vibrants
A tune in a minor scale that changes to major in the chorus. There’s an interesting change at 2:13.

Revolutionary
1989 Jens-Christian Huus
The first tune I did in my final version 2 music editor.

Sampler #1 (Tune #1)
1988 Jens-Christian Huus
Drums start at 1:22.

Sampler #1 (Tune #3)
1988 Jens-Christian Huus
The fast part from 0:20 was later extracted as Hoppin’ (not included in this blog post).

Sandy
1989 Vibrants

Scanliner
1991 Vibrants

Secret Land
1989 Vibrants
Conversion of “Secret Land” by Sandra.

Shadow Sun
1989 Vibrants
One of the last tunes I did in an assembler listing (my editor was almost complete).

Sharks (Title)
1988 Galaxy
Made in my old player where the composition was made in Aegis Sonix on the Amiga. It was meant to be used in a game by German demo coders, but it was never finished.

Sharks (Hiscore)
1988 Galaxy
Shared the same block as the title above.

She’s Just a Maniac
1988 Jens-Christian Huus
Again I imagined that the words in the title could be sung, here first from 0:08 to 0:12. The ring modulation part at 0:36 was inspired by Maniacs of Noise. Johannes Bjerregaard told me how to create it.

Shift
1991 Vibrants
My last digi tune but also my last C64 tune in general. It was composed solely on a Korg M1 first, apart from the fourth digi track that starts at 1:16 as sort of a surprise.

Short Max
1989 Vibrants

Short ‘n’ Sad
1988 Jens-Christian Huus

Shorty
1988 Dominators
A tiny intro tune made for a Dominators intro that I coded myself.

Simple Tune
1988 Wizax
My first test tune in my own player that I had started working on shortly after leaving Laxity’s music player. No effects yet, just pure notes.

Skærmtrolden Hugo
1991 SilverRock Productions
Conversion of “Hugo Rap” by George Keller, a pop/rap hit in Denmark.

Slap Bass
1989 Vibrants
There are interesting changes at 0:34, 1:50 and a funky solo at 3:00.

Soft #3
1989-90 Vibrants
There are interesting changes at 0:50 and 1:16.

Song Made in Monitor
1988 Jens-Christian Huus
I knew that Laxity made his music in a machine code monitor, and I was curious and had to try it out too. I absolutely didn’t like it and immediately went back to assembler listings (and later my music editor).

Spaceport
1989-90 Vibrants
Conversion of the title tune from the Amiga game Spaceport by Holger Gehrmann.

Stopform+
1989-90 Vibrants

Strike Force
1990 Vibrants ADLIB
Remix of the original C64 intro tune by Diflex. I converted this to AdLib in 1992.

Stylish
1989 Vibrants
A demo tune for Upfront. There are interesting changes at 0:49 and 1:27.

Stylish II
1989 Vibrants
