I cannot make tunes myself.
But I linked some C64 soundtracks in the original post: "Giana Sisters", "Batman", "Double Dragon".
And on the NES itself: Shiru's songs "Danger Streets" and "After the Rain". The specific music of "Overlord" linked in the above video. And the first seven seconds of "Lethal Weapon", but not the rest of the song.

It definitely has some of the C64 elements in it that I'm looking for, but not really in its entirety.

Sure, it won't be possible to reproduce it completely, but since there are a few songs that sound pretty C64-like, it is possible to do something like that.
Your example song sounds a bit too muffled. The songs from the above examples sound clearer, more "dominant" and more metallic, if that makes any sense.

Yup, this already has a good feel of what I'm looking for.

You want specific chiptune techniques that are used across various formats.
Yeah, o.k., I'm not so experienced with the terms. I call it C64-style because that's where I heard this. I linked some C64 music that I like, so we could just as well say: I'd like to have NES music that sounds as close as possible to the style of these songs.

The information from that thread is obsolete. I don't write my own sound engine anymore. I use FamiTone for my game now.

I want the style that is used in "Giana Sisters", "Double Dragon" and "Batman" on the NES. And I'm asking here exactly because
I don't know the correct terms, so that my composer can read this and understand all the technical terms that you use to know what I want.

Well, it has been done with regular NES music. Shiru's two songs sound like it and the "Overlord" music. And some of the sample music in this thread. So it should be possible to create something like that with standard NES sound.
