"Schön sein" (To be beautiful) is a song by Die Toten Hosen. It's the lead single and the seventh track from the album Unsterblich.
The song is about a wish to be beautiful and rich, which in many people's minds is supposed to make their life better off and bring success.
The single was released with two possible covers: a mirror cover and a rarer poodle cover, both of which are symbols of self-admiring.
The music video was directed by Stefan Telegdy. It features a car mechanic, played by Ben Becker, who cross-dresses in free time and is shown planning a sex change operation.
