"Net als toen" ("Just like then") was the winning song of the Eurovision Song Contest 1957 performed in Dutch by Corry Brokken representing the Netherlands. It received 31 points, placing it first in a field of ten.
The song is a classic chanson, with the singer addressing her husband and asking him if he remembers their early days as a couple. The lyrics suggest that the romance has gone out of the marriage, although it had not always been this way.
Brokken also recorded the song in French and German, as "Tout comme avant" and "Damals war alles so schön".
