Audio sample

"Ichiban Kirei na Watashi o" (一番綺麗な私を?, "The Most Beautiful Me") is the thirty-second single by Japanese singer Mika Nakashima. Released on August 25, 2010, it was the theme song for the TBS TV series, Unubore Deka (うぬぼれ刑事?, Conceited Detective).[1] Nakashima played the supporting role of Rie Hagurashi in the TV series.

This song has been noted for its "old-sounding" tune reminiscent of 20th-century Japanese pop songs, such as Teresa Teng's; J-pop hit songs have mostly been under the strong influence of electronic elements from the likes of synthpop, techno, hip hop and Eurobeat since the 1990s.[2]
