"Ichiban Kirei na Watashi o"
"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). 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.
All tracks written by Katsuhiko Sugiyama.
