"Here Comes My Baby" is a pop song written by Cat Stevens and recorded in 1967. It originally appeared on his album Matthew and Son.

The track was featured in the film Rushmore.

Cover versions[edit]

The song, minus the final verse, was also covered by The Tremeloes, whose version was a No. 4 hit in the UK Singles Chart[1] and a No. 13 hit in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1967.[2] It was also covered by The Mavericks, whose version peaked at number 42 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in 1999.[3] In 1990, Yo La Tengo covered it in their covers album Fakebook. Jim Noir covered the song for a 2006 Chase Bank commercial.

It was also done as a pop-punk cover in the late 1970s by The Jags. The track can be found on their The Best of the Jags album. It was also covered by LMP on their album A Century of Song as their selection for 1967.

The song was featured in the television special "Barbie and the Sensations: Rockin' Back to Earth", a sequel to "Barbie and the Rockers: Out of This World", an earlier special from 1987. The song was covered by the titular band, Barbie and the Rockers, and was featured during a makeover scene where they tried to blend in after they had accidentally traveled back in time to 1959 (the year that the Barbie doll debuted).

The Max Weinberg 7 often played a rousing cover version of the song going in and out of commercial on Late Night with Conan O'Brien.

This song was covered by Elizabeth Mitchell on her album You Are My Sunshine.[4] More recently, Turin Brakes released their cover version as a b-side to their single, "Something In My Eye".[5]
