Released two years ago, Cody ChesnuTT‘s Landing on a Hundred was one of my favorite albums as it was the first co-number 1 on this site’s Best of 2012 List, and among a list of my favorite soul/R&B albums released within the last five years or so as it deals with topics in a way that hasn’t been heard in contemporary music in some time – the album’s material explores themes of redemption, faith, love and manhood with a sensitivity and empathy that makes most of the music you’ve heard seem shallow and childish. 

“More Than a Wedding Day” is probably the sweetest love song I’ve heard in some time and paints a simple picture of how it’s the love of others that can get us through even the worst of times – and that true, profound love always shows itself for what it is.  From listening to the song, it sounds as though it could have easily been released in 1965 – ChesnuTT’s silky smooth vocals, paired with an arrangement that makes you want to do a joyful old-school two-step. 

Visually, the video is something else, as the couples in the video are beautiful and seem so much in love, that you can’t help but feel their ecstatic joy – especially the central couple of the video.
