What C64 songs still make your heart soar after all these years?

Feel free to include links to the songs if possible. :)

Rob Hubbard's International Karate (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzlK_JNuOGE), which is now available on the Wii's Virtual Console, by the way.

Martin Galway's Rambo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BYv4DCqL0c) theme...

and

his Yie Ar Kung Fu (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDoGYlAzT7w) theme is sublime.

And here are two more from Hubbard- the opening theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYsVx_ff6Sk&feature=related) to Commando and the the high score music (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLp8ErRj8s0&feature=related). Oh, and here's a metal cover (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAmWashzR_0&feature=related) of the opening just for the hell of it.

I guess that's got the ol' ball rolling.

Lazy Jones has really cool music, it was one of the first video games I really loved when I was really young.

If you have an iOS device, SidPlayer Pro is a great app. It lets you browse through tons of Commodore songs.

And to answer the original question: the opening song to Temple of Apshai Trilogy really takes me back. I can remember loading the game just to listen to the music.

And Uridium!

The title screen music from 'Uridium' is my all time favorite.

That's all I can think of at the moment. I'll post more later.

The starting screen for Drelbs.

Drelbs scared the living bejesus out of me as a kid. I remember being absolutely frightened by that game.

The freakiness is the reason I played it then and I play it now. But Forbidden Forest was the game that screwed me up.

Man, no M.UL.E. main theme? I mostly associate it with the a800, but it's still iconic.

Also the Master of the Lamps soundtrack. Don't know why I love it but I do...
