"Beautiful People" as written by Chris Lowe and Neil Tennant....
City life just leaves me weak
All this madness on the street
Need to get away today
Live my life a different way

Is it only a fantasy
To dream about a perfect me?

[Chorus: x2]
I want to live like beautiful people
Give like beautiful people
With like beautiful people around

Buy the latest magazine
And aspire to the dream
Perfect home and perfect kids
Not a life lived on the skids

Is it only fantasy
Or could it be reality?

[Chorus: x2]

Now I can see myself
Without a care in the world
It's a sun shining
Money spending
Green and healthy new world

Is it only fantasy
Or could it be reality?

[Chorus: x2]

    My InterpretationI think, this song is about how we all relate to the perfect world created by the advertisement industry. The city-dweller in the song is plagued by the urban life while being surrounded by images on magazines of people going green, looking beautiful, living in perfect houses, with clean and healthy kids. So s/he dreams of this life where things are better, economy has improved, and the world is green - the modern day Utopia.
