With a straight-forward cover of the classic Jewish celebration song, the A-side of this single bops along through a bass and piano arrangement, while the vocals come together without overpowering the underlying instrumentation.  The B-side foregoes the vocals without adding any other instruments, and gives the Italian-sourced music a bit of a rock treatment.  Something of an odd pair, but enjoyable nonetheless.
