Wanna hear that song for the first time just one more time

Last year, when we went to Japan, we found ourselves with a few hours to kill between leaving our capsule hotel and running to the airport. We decided to spend a bit of time exploring the Mecca of Japanese consumerism which is Akihabara's Yodobashi Camera.

While we were there, I remember wanting to get a good pair of headphones that were not ear-buds. All of the display models were tied into the same CD player. Every pair I tested out allowed me to hear the same gorgeous song over and over again. After some furious studying up and some help from Nova, I asked one of the men who worked there what the song was. Unfortunately, I wasn't confident enough to really push for more clarification, and the only thing I was able to learn was the artist's name.

Nakashima Mika.

Now, Yodobashi Camera had a Tower Records inside, and I listened to EVERY SINGLE one of her albums that they had on the shelf and not a single one of those albums contained the song. I've searched You Tube and every other resource I can think of.

Right now, I want to hear that song more than anything else, and I don't even know the name of it. I don't even know enough Japanese to tell you what a single lyric was. I just know it was primarily dark piano with low vocals and it moved like heavy waves on the ocean.

If any Mika fans out there are reading this, and you know what song was on Yodobashi's audio demo back in September of 2007, PLEASE let me know. I know this is a long shot, but I desperately want to hear this song one more time.
