Where to download Amiga game music?

It seems that www.amigamusic.com is down so I was wondering if there are any other good sites out there to download Amiga game music in mp3 format?

Why bother with crappy mp3 conversions when you can just listen to the original files?

I second what Genju said, but if you insist on downloading MP3's you should have a look here : http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=39450
gklinger posted a link to a very impressive collection of Amiga game tunes in both the original and MP3 format

Well if the MP3 is recorded with a high bitrate and with a good player there shouldn't be a big difference, but if you plan to hear the tunes on a PC the original formats and a good player ensure that they sound nearly 100% like they should.

http://www.chipretro.com/data/amiga/music/ 2342 files

New & current modules http://modarchive.org/ you can also search for old game tunes, not sure how many they have 'n' whether they are just remakes or not.

http://www.mirsoft.info/gamemods-archive.php, just select the platform & away you go, formats used Mod / XM / S3M / IT

Wish I could flash download them all, Amiga and C64, so I could just set Deliplayer away 'n' listen too the lot Although I think divorce papers would be floating around after a few weeks

Well the easiest way to download 35,000+ C64 tunes is via the 68mb zip (or 50mb RAR) on HVSC: http://www.hvsc.c64.org/

That should keep you going for a while !
