Where can I get tapes for Commidore 64 in audio format?

I recently got a Commodore 64 and plan to use it for vintage coding and playing retro computer games. So I want to load some Basic code on some games like Pacman, Tetris, etc. 

I would like to load sound from my phone and connect an AUX cable to he input port, the conputer will think that I am loading a cassette since it is analog and is really just looking for a sound. I can't explain everything so well, just go to this video, https://youtu.be/_9SM9lG47Ew and skip to 7:32. That should explain what I am talking about. 
So my question is what are those websites with retro games file in cassette (Audio) format that I can just plug in my MP3 player or phone or whatever into the input port and the computer will think I am loafing a cassette? Also I guess if I want to record I will plug in my phone to the output port and record audio.

So basically can someone give me a website where I can retro games in audio format like what I explained?
Abd sorry if this is the wrong category.

We are talking this ?

Or the later version of a box with i/o for everything ?

Not the Commodore PET

That pic reminds me of the "personal computers" we used in school LOL
I used to transfer my programs from a datasette as everything on these 8080's were identical to what Commodore used.
Also reminds me of times with real music that did not require half naked girls in a video to have success ROFL

Nakeding females are nice but are totally detracting from the quality of any music...

Perhaps a pointer to a non-money grubbing url would be neighborly :)

Oh well.

Actually I have little idea what your looking for but you can better spend the time than I can.

I searched on Google but I don't get any search result that I am looking for.

You know these games are mostly in basic language, which was hand typed in by the keyboard and then saved to cassette for easy reload...

I have two 64s and did key in a machine language (Not 'C') to run a Lionel train PWM so my children could creep a full train to an exact station position stop.. -.-. . --. -.

Yeah, I meant tapes loading BASIC code. So do you know any websites that I can load games in BASIC with audio, with the Commodore thinking it is a Datassette?

As Iceng pointed out the programs are in plain text.
Games that were not freeware, including those on the cartridges and disks came in assembler code.
So you basically need a way to get the files you find onto the C64 in the first place, from there you can save them onto a tape with a datasette or better use the disk drive.
Getting the files as an audio won't happen for two reasons:
a) you need to record them with the exact speeds for the datasette in question.
b) most games these days come in the form of files for ROM emulators.

I would start in one of the many C64 forums out there and do some digging ;)

Look for printed basic text in old basic games on google, I remember volumetric 1.5 times bigger then large coffee-table 30 page magazines full of basic game programs for the TRS-80, Apple_II and Commodore_64..

Then do the long work of correctly typing the game instructions into the very limited RAM Random_Access_Memory, once you get the selected game to Run, then finally save it to a good cassette tape..
