"Wonderful" is a song by the band Everclear, released as the first single from their 2000 album "", reaching #11 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Wonderful has been featured in several TV series including the Scrubs episode My Fifteen Minutes, the Jericho episode Why We Fight and the episode "Wonderful" from Mysterious Ways. It has also been featured in the movies Pay It Forward, 40 Days and 40 Nights, and Saving Silverman.

The song tells the story of a divorce as perceived by a child. Each verse of the song corresponds to a different stage of the divorce. The first verse describes the child hearing his parents fight as he tries to block it out, remembering what it was like before his parents began to fight. The second verse describes the child going to school and pretending to his friends that everything is alright at home, despite what is heard in the first verse. The bridge describes the child lashing out at his parents, not wanting to comprehend that his parents have begun to grow apart and date other people.
