From Wikipedia:
Ayumi Hamasaki is a Japanese singer-songwriter and former actress. Also called Ayu by her fans, Hamasaki has been dubbed the "Empress of Pop" because of her popularity and widespread influence in Japan. Born and raised in Fukuoka, she moved to Tokyo at fourteen to pursue a career in entertainment. In 1998, under the tutelage of Avex CEO Max Matsuura, she released a string of modestly selling singles that concluded with her 1999 debut album A Song for ××. The album debuted atop the Oricon charts and stayed there for four weeks, establishing her popularity in Japan.
Hamasaki's constantly changing image and tight control over her artistry has helped her popularity extend across Asia; music and fashion trends she has started have spread to countries such as China, Singapore, and Taiwan. She has appeared in or lent her songs to many advertisements and television commercials. Though she originally supported the exploitation of her popularity for commercial purposes, she later reconsidered and eventually opposed her status as an Avex "product".
Since her 1998 debut with the single "Poker Face", Hamasaki has sold over 50 million records in Japan, making her the best selling solo singer in Japanese history and ranking her among the best-selling singers in the country. As a female singer, Hamasaki holds several domestic records for her singles, such as the most number-one hits overall by a female artist, the most consecutive number-one hits (also by a female artist), the highest sales, and the most million-sellers. Since 1999, Hamasaki has had at least one single each year top the charts. Hamasaki is the first female singer to have eight studio albums since her debut to top the Oricon and the first artist to have a number-one album for 12 consecutive years since her debut.

Naw, just a crapton of gambling.

Surprised that nothing new really popped up, but then again it isn't really the time for new releases to be announced, haha. We need a title or something, Ayu~ Tales of Xillia theme naooo~

Oh woah, would you look at that! Anyway, off to get that code now!

The spoiler tags are kind of bleeped up here. lol. Oh well, gotta start somewhere.

I do not list the 50 SINGLES LIVE thing because really, no one really cares about that release. And there's a bit much to pack (3 video releases and 5 audio releases?!) into a first post that people probably have already seen so I will just link to the new releases in the "LATEST NEWS" section.

Hey, the 50 SINGLES LIVE does have some interest!
I wouldn't buy it 'cause It's far too much expensive, but I actually do wanna watch it at least once!

Well, I know some people are interested in it, but I think it's one of those releases that people may generally gloss over...

It's kind of like when people do single re-releases? I think I excluded it last time because it just did NOT fit into the topic with everything.

ok guys
since I am too lazy to go through every song to check...
what are some ayu songs about falling in love with someone/one-sided love/anything that's related to love (but just not about someone in a relationship...necessarily)

These are what I thought of off the top of my head:

Days
No way to say
Sunset

Well Sunset was written as a song about a love of a daughter to her father (and Sunrise about a father love to its daughter) according to ayu.

Maybe Like a doll? Maybe it could be seen as someone fell in love with someone who doesn't show feelings at all.
