U.N.オーエンは彼女なのか? (U.N. Owen Was Her?) Remixes

Some of you may or may not know of the popular Touhou song called "U.N. Owen Was Her?" (or U.N.オーエンは彼女なのか? in Japanese). This song was Flandre Scarlet's boss theme and the first Touhou song to gain memetic popularity through means unrelated to Touhou.

Flandre Scarlet (フランドール・スカーレット)
"Flandre is the younger sister of Remilia and the "dirty little secret" of Scarlet Devil Mansion. Because of her unstable personality and incredible destructive power, her sister has had her locked up in the basement for nearly 500 years. She knows little about the world outside and until the heroines arrived during the Extra Stage of Embodiment of Scarlet Devil she had had no substantive contact with any humans save Sakuya."
Flandre is probably one of the most insane yet simultaneously moe characters to exist in Japanese media to this day. She's the younger sister of Remilia, and has a lot less control than her sibling, hence the reasoning for the information above. She was first shown as the Extra Boss in Embodiment of Scarlet Devil.
  • Ability: Destruction of anything and everything
  • The Extra Boss. Also the Mistress's younger sister.
  • She is a vampiric magical girl and has been the Scarlet Devil's younger sister for about 495 years.
  • She's kind of nuts and isn't usually allowed out of the cellar, but she usually doesn't try to let herself out.
  • She really respects her older sister Remilia, but her raw destructive power far exceeds that of her sister's. Although she is usually docile, her insanity makes it difficult for others to understand her.
  • When vampires attack humans, they generally try to take their prey alive so that they can suck its blood afterward, but Flandre has always been fed with cooked dishes, so she doesn't know how to properly attack a human. Whenever she tries to attack a human, she fusses too much and blows them away without leaving a spot of blood.
  • Perhaps she can't tell that her daily meals are made from living humans. Her meals look like such harmless foodstuffs as cake and tea, after all...

U.N. Owen Was Her? (U.N.オーエンは彼女なのか?)
U.N. Owen was her? (U.N.オーエンは彼女なのか?, romanized U.N. Ōen wa kanojo na no ka?) is the music for the extra stage boss (Flandre Scarlet) in Embodiment of Scarlet Devil.
ZUN's Note
フランドール・スカーレットのテーマです。
今回のもっともお気に入りです。いかにして悪魔っ娘を東洋風に
かつ、ミステリアスに表現できるかに挑戦した結果です。
ロリっぽいこのメロディは、今作品でもっとも私らしいメロディ
で、鍵盤弾くのが楽しかったです。

Flandre Scarlet's theme.
I liked this one the best out of the whole game. It
depicts a devilish girl in an Oriental and mysterious way.
Loli-tastic melodies like this are what I'm best at, so I
had a lot of fun composing this
U.N. Owen Was Her? became incredibly popular due to a MAD circulating on the internet from NicoNico Douga, featuring Ronald McDonald doing things in tune to Flandre's theme. You can find that video here. Afterwards, it led to several remixes and MADs following the same habit, anywhere from Yu-Gi-Oh! videos to Miname-ke and Toradora.

Background story aside, I made this topic so we could share remixes and MADs of this great song. I'm looking forward to what you all manage to dig up.
