  • Christiano from Piracicaba, BrazilIt's one of their best songs, different and original.
    oh! And the video is also nice =]
  • Sarah from Aberdeen, United KingdomWell the reason it's s different from their other stuff is because it's basically a total hybrid of many Jellyfish songs - if you like this, you'll love the album "Bellybutton" - they've copied them to the extent that the b-side is a Jellyfish cover - and no, it's not so much a tribute as a straight lift - even down to the phrasing in the lyrics.
  • Christina from Karlstad, -this is one of my favourite songs by McFly, it's so different to their other songs ^^
  • Zabavnik from Ljubljana, EuropeBaby's Coming Back/Transylvania is a double A side from Mcfly's third album. The single went straight to #1 in UK, but only for a week, then it dropped to #20.
