|Agnetha Fältskog singles chronology|
"The Way You Are" is a pop song that was recorded by Agnetha Fältskog and Ola Håkansson of the band Secret Service in 1986. The song was used to promote Falun, Sweden as a candidate for hosting the 1992 Olympic Winter Games. Falun was not selected to host the Games, but the song became a big hit in Sweden.
The song on the B-side, "Fly Like the Eagle", was also a duet by Fältskog and Håkansson. Both songs were featured in the documentary It's Time for Sweden.
The single reached No. 1 in Sweden, but was not successful in the rest of the world. Though outside Sweden, The Way You Are received extensive airplay by FM stations at least in Brazil, during the 1987-89 period, as it can still be seen by the numerous blogs and websites in that country displaying either translations or links to direct streaming of that song.
