— German version of the chorus

Reim and Tyler recorded two versions of the song; one in German and English, and the other completely in English.

In the German/English version, the song has two choruses, once in German and then in English. The first chorus (right) is sung in English at the end. In the English version, the German chorus is translated.

Reim and Tyler were interviewed in 2004 in conjunction with the release of the single. Tyler stated that she had performed in festivals alongside Reim and thought that due to a similar German fan base, the single would be successful and a good idea to record.[1] They also performed the single on several German TV shows.[2]

On June 4 and 5, 2010, Tyler supported Reim in concerts in Eberswalde and Kamenz, Germany. They performed "Vergiß Es (Forget It)" live.[3][4]
