"Thieves Like Us" is a single by British group New Order, released in April 1984 by Factory Records, catalogue number FAC 103. It is named after the 1974 film Thieves Like Us, directed by Robert Altman. Bernard Sumner states during a TV interview in 1984, that the song title was suggested by John 'Jellybean' Benitez (an associate of the song's co-writer, Arthur Baker).
The B-side was "Lonesome Tonight". Both tracks appear on the group's 1987 Substance compilation, and on the 2008 Collectors Edition of Power, Corruption & Lies, as well as the extended instrumental version of Thieves Like Us (originally the B-side to "Murder").
Like many of their releases, the record was produced by the band, although "Thieves Like Us" was co-written by Arthur Baker during the New York sessions for "Confusion".
An instrumental of the track was featured in the 1986 movie Pretty in Pink.
