"Beautiful People" is a song written and recorded by the Pet Shop Boys group, and was released on 2 October 2009, as the third single from their tenth studio album: Yes. This single was released in Germany only first, at the request of EMI. In November it was released in the USA as a download.
The B-side, "Fugitive", had previously been published (in an extended version) on the limited edition of their 2006 album Fundamental. The song was produced by Richard X.
Both the demo version of "Beautiful People" and the remix of "Up And Down" had been previously available digitally. The demo was available to stream from the official Pet Shop Boys website and the remix was available as a free download during the "Did You See Me Coming?" single campaign. Remixes by Vinny Vero were commissioned but not used due to delays in their completion. They were later released unofficially as a free download on Vero's website.
