This is a classic example of a teenage love song in which boy meets girl, boy falls in love, girl loses interest but boy is still in love. Of course, the girl's name is Luanne, and that name is repeated 26 times.
The title of the song as well as the name of the subject could be derived from the name of Foreigner member Lou Gramm.
