|McFly singles chronology|
"Baby's Coming Back"/"Transylvania" (single release titled "Baby's Coming Back & Transylvania") is the fourth and final single from English pop rock band McFly's third studio album, Motion in the Ocean. The single became one of the first singles in history to reach number one on the UK Singles Chart on downloads alone. The single stayed at number one for one week, and only spent four weeks in the chart.
It was originally announced that "Transylvania" would be released by itself, before the announcement of a further double A-side was made on 20 March 2007. "Baby's Coming Back" is a cover of the 1991 Jellyfish song. The pipe organ introduction to "Transylvania" is the opening of Johann Sebastian Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor.
- "Baby's Coming Back" - The official video is like their previous song, Ultraviolet, as it sees the boys performing on stage with tour footage from their recent tour, "Up Close And Personal". The video was filmed during their "Up Close And Personal" tour 2007 at the Wolverhampton tour date.
- "Transylvania" - Their official site reported in January that the video "will see all the boys dressed up as girls in a gothic castle, with nasty villains, damsels in distress, and over the top shenanigans". The silent-movie-style black-and-white video, shot in late January 2007 and viewable on YouTube from 3 February 2007, features the boys dressed up in costumes from a variety of mismatched time periods. Anne Boleyn is portrayed by Dougie Poynter.
