Baby Come Back” is a song by American rock band Player. It was released in October 1977 as the lead single from their self-titled second studio album. It was written by lead singer Peter Beckett and J.C. Crowley. The song was their biggest single, hitting number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 10 on the soul charts, in 1978. It was the breakthrough single for the band, gaining them mainstream success, and the only number-one hit of their career.

The song has been used in the film Safe Men (1998). In 2011, it was the source of a parody by Chicago artist, Magic 1, entitled “Cutty Come Back”, which alludes to the Chicago Bears’ woes without quarterback Jay Cutler.[1][2][3][4][5] The song is also used in the Michael Bay blockbuster Transformers, when the AutobotBumblebee communicates with its new owner Sam Witwicky through songs on the radio. In this case, after an incident with the girl he is attracted to, Mikaela, gets out of the car and Sam tries to persuade her to “come back”. The lyrics of the song are expected to accomplish this desire, as laid out by the filmmakers, though it is unlikely given the context that she would actually come back anyway.
