Gerard Biederman asked,

Again I have a question about the correct spelling of a song title. This 
time it concerns
1) 'S WONDERFUL     or
Note the place of the apostroph.
I should say the first spelling is correct because the S is short for IT'S.
But I see it many times as S'Wonderful.

Definitely 'S WONDERFUL.  As you note, the apostrophe replaces the missing 
IT.  But you'll see it screwed up various ways.
