When I hear LANCO’s latest single, “Greatest Love Story, ” you think of a sweet young high school fairytale. Written by the band’s lead singer Brandon Lancaster, he says he has been in a multiple- year relationship that included a break, so the heart of the story is very close to him. For anyone who has ever separated from a relationship for a time, only to get back together again, or for anyone who is currently separated from a great love in the hopes of being back together soon, this song is dedicated to you.
It’s the story of two high school sweethearts who fell for one another. One realized she wanted to experience life by going off to college, while the other one starts working and keeps thinking of her. As time goes on it then comes full circle when they reunite and as they say, the rest is history. Makes me think of the movie, “Serendipity” with John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale. They have a connection for a moment but decide if it’s meant to be that fate will take care of them. Well, we know how the movie ended. Makes you not give up on love easily. Especially love you know that’s worth fighting for.
