As it turns out, THE FIRST TAKE is not just good for getting live-ish performances of new singles and discovering artists you haven’t heard of yet, but also functions effectively as a trip down memory lane. That was proven by guests PUFFY bringing back 1998’s “Ai No Shirushi“. It’s been a minute.
The nostalgia, lol.
Additionally, there was a shorter trip back to 2019 with Little Glee Monster and “Sekai Wa Anata Ni Waraikakete Iru“. That was interesting because it was before their late-2022 member switch, so it’s truly a first (and fresh) take of sorts.
