GET UP -JAPANESE ver.-
Seeing that this song was just on VAMPS’ most recent album, “BEAST”, MEMORIES was a surprise choice for me to have re-cut since it wasn’t one of the stronger songs from there, but I guess seeing how it’s special, I can’t complain. Also it seems weird they chose this song since it’s light and summery which is totally weird at this point and time. It’s alright for me since it’s been just OK enough to be A-side material, but iono…Just not the song I would’ve chosen HYDE and KAZ.
2. GET UP -JAPANESE ver.-
Seeing as it’s the only real reason to buy the single, GET UP gets lyrically changed into their native tongue. I really don’t see it much since there’s still quite a bit of English. Anyway, GET UP was one of the more powerful songs from the album and this was good to see get changed up. It’s not bad, but was the language twist really needed?
For being a recut single, I was mostly not surprised what we got with MEMORIES/GET UP since not much has changed in the songs that we were given earlier in the year. MEMORIES is alright, but there was better songs to have made recut status but w/e. The new version of GET UP was only slight, but the song is still pretty damn good. At least this wasn’t like their last recut single, “SWEET DREAMS”.
