"Just Like That" is a 1982 song by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, which is an unreleased song recorded by ABBA. The song was recorded by Swedish brother and sister duo, Karin Glenmark and Anders Glenmark as Gemini on Polydor, for the album Gemini (1986) produced by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus with Anders Glenmark, and released as a 1986 single.

The song was originally intended to become part of Mamma Mia![1][2] but this did not happen, though a snippet of the 1982 recording was made available in "ABBA Undeleted" from Thank You for the Music (box set). Parts of the song were used in the 1982 ABBA single ‘Under Attack’. In 1983, Bjorn was planned on putting songs recording during The Visitors sessions on a LP. Many tapes were robbed from Bjorn's car by an anonymous person at one point after leaving his car outside, and have been included on many bootlegs since.[3] Among these were 3 takes of the ABBA recording of Just Like That, nicknamed the "slow", "na-na-na" and "saxophone" versions respectively. A song that was planned to be on the album ("I Am The City") did get an official release, as a track in More ABBA Gold: More ABBA Hits.
