|Imai Miki, what a lovely voice

I happened to catch a show on Imai Miki, a Japanese singer with a lovely sweet voice. She was singing Piece of My Wish, a beautiful and gentle song. So natsukashii! Lyrics here. Talk about bringing back memories from over a decade ago...
The first song I ever heard from her was Pride. It was the opening song of a drama starring one of the Smap guys, Katori Shingo, and a very well known actress I remember from a really old drama called "Sugao no Mama de" in which she sported really bad hair. She co-starred with Nakamori Akina, a singer with a deep and pleasant voice. Oh man, Akina also had really bad hair. They looked like they were from the 80s, though the drama was in 1992. I thought the first half of the drama was quite good, but was rather unsatisfied with the latter half. The theme song of that show was also excellent: Kimi ga iru dake de by Kome Kome Club.
In any case, Imai Miki has a fabulous voice. I know I have a couple of her CDs, but I have no idea where they are right at this moment. :P
