"Beautiful Ones" is the second single from the album Coming Up by Suede, released on October 14, 1996 on Nude Records. The song became a Top Ten hit in the UK, peaking at #8.[1]


Billboard wrote: "like a fast-mangled Oasis song, The London Suede succeeded in making sounds of pop/rock that are definitely unique. The painfully true lyrics and vibrant sounds have already proved to be a hit in the U.K."[2]

Music video[edit]

The video for the title song was directed by Pedro Romhanyi, who previously made the video for the band's song, "Animal Nitrate".[citation needed]

Cover versions[edit]

  • British female singer Kim Wilde recorded a version of the song for her 2011 album Snapshots.
  • In Chile, "Beautiful Ones" was versioned by the children show Cachureos, recalling it "Los Ancianos" (The Older Ones).
