HIT FM TV - Barbi Benton - Aint that just the way
Boys and girls, time for yet another installment in our Miami Nice video series!
This time we go back a little further, while still keeping the connection to law enforcement. This song, "Ain't that just the way" with Barbi Benton was featured on the episode "Park Avenue Pirates" (first US air date September 21, 1975) of the then popular police TV drama McCloud (NBC, 1970-77).
As Swedish State Television of the 1970´s had a whole bunch of, let's call it "other stuff more important than US police dramas" lined upp for airing it took it took a good while before the episode was finally broadcast in Sweden. But once aired on Swedish State TV, the Swedes took the singing Barbi bunny to their hearts, and it became a big hit, reaching number one in both the Swedish singles and album charts (in May 1977).
The video features Barbie in the studio "recording" the song, with McCloud really digging in inside the "control room" (with no less than 8 channels!). Note how Barbie Benton just uses one of the headphones, anything else would obstruct the view of Benton's hair. Of course.
Before we go, there's another Swedish connection here! In 1996, Lutricia McNeal, covered the song. It was a nice cover that charted on HIT 60 and elsewhere. But since this is the Miami Nice section, we prefer the original version, don't we? :)
