Chip-pop?

Where can I find covers of popular songs done in the style of c64/amiga/mod/xm etc?

The era the music comes from isn't as important as how familiar the songs are to your average joe.

You should probably check out scene.org archives as well. Lot's of goodies there as well.

Synthpop Mods has loads of mod covers of synth pop classics. The blue3 version of Blue Monday is brilliant.

Get yourself SidPlay and download The High Voltage SID Collection, then use any number of SID search engines.

Also, there are the classic standbys of: Micromusic.net, 8bitpeoples.com, kohina.com, and chiptune.com.
