A CD single for the song was not issued in the United States. However, a re-released version of the “You Were Meant for Me” CD single had a hidden bonus track of the single version of “Foolish Games”. Because of this, instead of debuting and charting on the chart in the traditional way, “Foolish Games” was able to continue the chart life of “You Were Meant for Me”. The latter, which was on its 41st week on the chart at number 25, rebounded to number 12 as “Foolish Games”, eventually peaking at number 7 eight weeks later. Despite this, Billboard counted the two singles as one, and such, “Foolish Games” was also listed for peaking at number two, despite the song never actually peaking at that position, thanks to the peak of the second single. “Foolish Games/You Were Meant for Me” was listed as the second best-performing song of 1997 by Billboard, behind Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind 1997”.
