Oh, right! I missed those, because she wrote them in Kanji in the lyrics.

How so?

Only because it's the only time the two songs are featured together, and the KSK version still doesn't have the subtitle/kanji reading "STEM." It's a longshot; that's why I said "maybe"...

Why has this line of discussion continued... as if you've never seriously looked at the Attachment which was in the post you quoted?

The posted screenshot from the MoRA DVD specifically shows the center track in Kanji-only, while the bonus track (taken from the single) is the only track with any translation within the same screenshot. It's not really a question of "Does the screenshot include 'stem'?", as if there were no context to the placement. What's important here is the coexisting combination of sections where 'stem' is and isn't mentioned

This is akin to a tracklist consisting mostly of upper-cased titles, where the presence of at least one lower-cased title would lend weight to the theory that the rest of the titles really are intended to be upper-cased. When upper and lower-cased titles coexist in an official tracklisting, they reinforce each others' credibility. Two versions of the same composition, together in the same tracklisting - with and without a translation, is another example of otherwise-questionable titles reinforcing each others' credibility.

I think The Most Curious Thing actually has a legitimate case here. I should have caught this years ago, but I've almost completely ignored the menus and video of those DVDs.

Mmm. I got confused. Disregard me; we're all on the same page. The KSK track is read "Kuki" and the single is "Stem." That's what I thought from the beginning but got confused by the wording.

I've listened to this album every morning this week. I always loved it but it's really struck a chord with me lately. It's certainly her best album, and is likely one of the best pop albums ever made.

Ten years and many happy returns, KSK.

(...or so I thought, but EMF says 2/24. I thought it was 2/23. Either way, happy birthday.)
