Let me go and put this deep cut on for you guys while I do these calculations. Anyone jam to this one back in the day? Got to love those beautiful layered harmonies on the later end of the second verse.

30. "On Tonight"
The final single from "Still" released in 2016, "On Tonight" unfortunately never received a video treatment, despite news the women had filmed one. Who loves this song?Shooter does, he ranked i the highest out of everyone!
Who doesn't?Me. I am Justin ranked this song dead last, the lowest out of anyone!
Despite the Patrice Rushen sample, this single didn't fair very well at Pulse. Pulse member Jazzy had this to say about the single when it was released:

27. "MCE (Man Crush Everyday)"
My personal favorite from "Still", this was the second single from the album which features a sample of Janet Jackson's "Funny How Time Flies (When You're Having Fun)". Apparently a video was filmed but unfortunately never saw the light of day..
Who loves it? Zincdoes! They ranked it much higher than anyone else Who doesn't love it so much? Bmac & Wavey don't seem to like Man Crush Everyday--they both ranked it dead last.
On Pulse, most people initially liked "MCE", it even went top 15 on Urban AC, but some Pulse members were not convinced.
This is tired. I want to like this but the cheese factor is sky high with the 87 samples and the recycled lyrics. I think Faith Evans could've done this song better. It sounds like it was tailor made for her. Fatman Scoop is the most useless person on the face of the planet.

25. "Love Unconditionally"
This was the second single from "I Missed Us". I guess the women wanted "Show Off" to be released and the label went against their wishes and released this one instead. I like the song enough, just reminds me a little too much of "LOVE" by Keyshia Cole.
Who loves it? Shooter does! It made his top 15. Who doesn't love it? Me. I am Justin doesn't. It is almost at the very bottom of his list.
Pulse veteran stunnedout had to say this about the track when it was released:

We first heard "Mystery" as an unreleased track from their 1999 Greatest Hits compilation. The song was recorded during the "New Beginning" sessions and contains some of the group's greatest layered background vocal harmonies.
This is my very favorite unreleased SWV track. Who loves this track? I do, bitches!
Who doesn't love it? newpoweR doesn't. They ranked it dead last : (

23. "Where Is The Love"
What a beautiful song. We first heard this as an interlude on "New Beginning" leading into "Fine Time" ("you picked a fine time to tell me that you did not love me"). Luckily, we were given the full version in on their Greatest Hits.
Fun Fact! According to Herb Mittleton, one of the writers of the song, the full version on their GH actually came before the Interlude on "New Beginning". They re-recorded the track specifically for "New Beginning".
Who loves this song? I do, I really really do. I think it's beautifully composed and when I heard it on "New Beginning", I always thought to myself "why isn't this a full song?"
Who doesn't love it? Shooter and newpoweR both ranked this very low on their list.

WHAT THE f**k Y'ALL KNOW ABOUT THIS ONE? 21. "You're The One" ('96 Anthem All-Star Remix)
SWV straight up had some of the best remixed of the 90's, and the All-Star remix to "You're The One" was no exception. Re recorded and featuring a sample of "Heartbeat" by Taana Gardner, this one was for the hood.
Who loves it? B-Boy and Me. I am Justin both voted it top 15. Who doesn't love it? Ginger Spice, he voted this very very low.
Pulse Member MikeCheck12 also has a good opinion of the remix:

20. "It's About Time"
"It's About Time" is the title track from their debut album and has always been a favorite of mine. And actually, LeLee has stated this is her favorite SWV song and she would like to perform it on tour someday. Who else loves it?B-Boy does! He rated it the highest out of us all, coming in at #4.
Who doesn't like it so much?newpower doesn't. They ranked it the lowest.

18. "Lose My Cool" feat. Redman
Third and cancelled single from "Release Some Tension". The label released this then cancelled it in favor of releasing "Rain" which was receiving more airplay at the time. I love how Taj sounds on this one.
A video was filmed but never released. It did however leak years later and it is very...corny. Check it out above, please!
