"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 peaked at number five on the UK Singles Chart in January 2005, making it their first British top-five single (see 2005 in British music). It also reached number one on the UK Dance Chart and the US dance chart. In Australia, the song peaked at number 29 on the ARIA Singles Chart, and in Ireland, it reached number 13.

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]
