Here is my best explanation:

'musical number' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'with good numbers making a comeback' is the wordplay.
'with' says to put letters next to each other.
'good' becomes 'g' (abbreviation).
'numbers' becomes 'nos' (no. is a kind of number**).
'making a comeback' says the letters should be written backwards.
'g' put next to 'nos' is 'gnos'.
'gnos' in reverse letter order is 'SONG'.
