First Seen should be the last property in the list, after "Last Played".
The full list should be Title, Artist, Album, Genre, Rating, Path, Play
Count, Track Number, Disc Number, Bitrate, Duration, Last Played and
First Seen.

Is that sorted by Last Played in descending order?  Sorting by Last
Played/First Seen works on the actual time, not how long ago it was - so
Last Played descending will give you the most recent songs, and if in
ascending order newly import tracks will get put there as they have
never been played.

Now that I think about it ascending and descending for those two
properties may be reversed from what people expects. Maybe I need to
reword it or swap the order around.
