I'd be interested in hearing these songs with higher quality samples and a bit more production polish. You've got some nice ideas and are clearly passionate about composition but, frankly, the presentation could be working against you. For projects wanting a retro sound you could be perfect but for projects needing more realistic sounding tracks it wouldn't work out as well.
Not sure what your set up is (i.e. PC or Mac, what DAWs you're using, etc) but consider investing in some better samples. They're coming down in price almost yearly and it can breathe so much more life into your work! Hope that helps!

The above recordings are just from the default Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth from an old machine running Windows XP. Many of my songs are done on a Yamaha PSR-740 which is a very old piece of equipment also. Different soundfonts or emulators are always an option, though we do have an actual guitarist in the band. Here are a few originals mixed on my PSR-740 (genres: easy listening, fusion, goth, mambo, metal, renaissance, techno):
