Ayumi Hamasaki "Trust" Music Video

Ayumi Hamasaki has reigned as Japan's undisputed queen of pop since before the turn of the century. The country's closest thing to Madonna in terms of her influence on pop culture and music industry clout. Since her debut in 1998 with her first single "poker face", she has sold more than 46 million copies, with the releases of her seven full-length studio albums, one mini-album, two compilation albums, 40 singles, and several non-studio albums, being the fourth top selling Japanese artist in the history of Japan. With the release of her 40th single "BLUE BIRD", Hamasaki's single sales have passed the 20 million mark[2], making her the first solo and female singer to do so. "Depend on you" was the main theme of videogame Thousand Arms. The song "Startin" was used as the opening theme song for the PS2 video game, Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams

Unfortunately my yumminess rating has broadened with advancing years.

Anything with a pulse would perhaps be more apt!
