"Filthy/Gorgeous" is a song by the American disco group Scissor Sisters. It is the seventh track on their first album, Scissor Sisters (see 2004 in music). It was released as the fifth and final single from that album in the United Kingdom and despite this, it was surprisingly successful commercially, peaking at #5 on the UK Singles Chart in January 2005, making it their first British top 5 single (see 2005 in British music). It also reached #1 on the British Dance Chart. This song appeared on the soundtrack to Tony Hawk's American Wasteland and also is the theme to the NBC show Kath & Kim. It was also used in the 2006 film It's a Boy Girl Thing.[1]

Music video[edit]

Two versions of the music video, which was directed by John Cameron Mitchell, were made: a full-length, raunchier version featuring semi-explicit scenes in a sex club, and an edited version where those scenes are shown more briefly, out of context, and occasionally obscured. Some scenes are removed completely.[citation needed]
