"Wonderful" is the first song Lady Gaga, Rob Fusari (Team Love Child), and Tom Kafafian wrote together! It was written in 2006. The song was number two on the iWebRadio's Top 10 Most Requested Songs in July of 2006.
The song was added to Gaga's PureVolume page, and currently remains there as one of two songs under an album titled, Retro-Sexual, the other song being "Beautiful, Dirty, Rich". The song was included in a demo she made in 2007 for Interscope before being signed. Other songs in the demo included "Kandy Life" and demo versions of "Brown Eyes", "Disco Heaven", and "Beautiful, Dirty, Rich". The song "Brown Eyes" is referred to in the line "I wrote a song about your eyes".
On December 28, 2009, Gaga was asked at a Meet & Greet for The Monster Ball Tour in Atlanta, whether she had plans of releasing the song. She responded by saying that she had considered giving the song to Adam Lambert for his debut album, but eventually decided against it, giving "Fever" instead.
|“||On Wonderful, Gaga displays her remarkable vocalic ability to switch between Fiona Apple-like crooning and an edgier chorus. For all the haters who think retro-rock is for the boys, Lady Gaga proves that chicks can wear their 80s influences on their sleeves, rock the mic and look sexy at the same time. The song was released in the Cary Nokey's EP (aka. Rob Fusari) Journal 8||”|
