Shwekey Tribute to Piamenta

It's lovely that Shwekey tributed Yossi Piamenta Z"L. However, it's a shame that he didn't include more of Yossie and Avi's original music in this medley, like any of the songs off of "Mitzvah" for example. Instead, it's mainly focused on the (mostly) secular songs they adapted.

It's also a shame that the original artists for (most of) those songs aren't acknowledged. Kol Hamesameach is "Turkish Kiss" by Tarkan and Asher Bara is "Land Down Under" by Men at Work. Siman Tov is partially credited. The original track title is "Jungle" by Kongas feat. Cerrone. I don't know the original title for Yaala Mashiach, but I believe that's an adaptation as well.
