Death Waltz or remade U.N. Owen was her?

Youtube's Guerep7 has released a video titled "john stump-death waltz". This confuses me, as the only sheet music I've been able to find is completely different from what the video is. Many people have been claiming it's Touhou's "U.N. Owen was her?", but only the refrains are the same. The verses aren't even close to each other. So have I just not been searching hard enough for John Stump's death waltz, or is it really just an alteration of Flandre Scarlet's theme song? If the latter, why are so many people calling it something different?

    It's "U.N. Owen was Her?"

    More specifically it's a piano version of COOL&CREATE's remix of it, however most people know their version from McRoll'd.

    Original was from 2002 in Touhou: Embodiment of the Scarlet Devil

    COOL&CREATE's Vers which was called 最終鬼畜妹フランドール・S (Final Savage Sister, Flandre S.) was released in 2004

    You wouldn't find "Death Waltz other than Faeries's Aire and Death Waltz" which wouldn't sound anything like this "Add a bicycle" , "move the cattle away from stage" , "add peanuts" were on the "Faeries Aire and Death Waltz" score so that rules it out.

    Guerep7 reuploaded that video. The original was from a Japanese site called Nico Nico Douga which is the Japanese equivalent of Youtube. The original video is this which was labeled as 【東方】最終鬼畜妹フランドール・Sの楽譜を真黒にしてみた 修正版 (you need an account to watch). From the looks of things, the song was from a collection of other piano midis that were edited together that were based off of COOL&CREATE's version and the original. The links to some of the other piano midis the uploader had linked dates as far back to 2008.

    I'm pretty sure Guerep7 or whoever started the Death Waltz thing just called it Death Waltz to parody how John Stump writes music that cannot be played but seen. I guess people want to believe that ZUN copied the song from another source like how "Septette for the Dead Princess" from the same game as "U.N. Owen was Her?" shares a similar translation of a French song "Pavane pour une infante défunte" meaning "Pavane for a Dead Princess" and that "Septette for the Dead Princess" shares a similar tune to the beginning of Beethoven's Sonata No. 8 - Pathetique 3rd Movement

    I downloaded the midi from the video on the nico site and played side-by-side with COOL&CREATE's ver. and up until the end where all the notes are hit they matched in sync when slowing down the midi by 5%.

    Also, don't forget that a waltz is written in 3/4 not 4/4.

    Source(s): This is a full reprint of the original video from nico. After the song, it shows the other midis that were used to create this piece.

    Oh, I have just remembered after reading this question. His death which was ten years ago was so tragic even overshadowed Undertaker's title win over Stone Cold (it was one of my favorite match ever). My favorite Owen Hart match: 1. Owen Hart vs Bret Hart Summerslam 1994 Cage match 2. Owen Hart vs Bret Hart Wrestlemania 10 It's shame Owen has never held any world title during WWF/E his career.
