The Royal Transylvanians (with lead vocals by Marilyn Sokol) sing "It's Been a Long, Long Time" on several Sesame Street recordings.

The song's opening lyric of "Kiss me once, kiss me twice..." fits in with the counting and numbers theme of the albums on which it appears. In fact, during the song the Count can't help counting everything in the song as it's performed.

The Royal Transylvanians are a reference to bandleader Guy Lombardo's Royal Canadians.
