The story:

1.) Gloria Gaynor - I Will Survive
Once upon a time, a Lunatic had a very bad relationship or two. No explanation of the Maniac and the Lunatic is complete without this history being mentioned. The Lunatic came out of the relationships badly damaged, but determined that she would survive, no matter what it took.

2.) Blondie - Double Take
When the Lunatic first met the Maniac, she was sure that her eyes were tricking her. He looked just like someone she'd known some thousands of miles away, and had many things in common with him. Later, as she discovered more and more about the Maniac, she learned that perhaps they had been brought together because of some uncompleted things from other things that had happened years in the past.

3.) The Cure - More Than This
Magic followed, unpredictable wild magic with fleeting promises of unimaginable beauty and joy. It was the first delighted scared sacred explorations of friendship, edged all around by wonder and magic and the hint that perhaps romance, something more than this, was in the air.

4.) A-Ha - Crying in the Rain
The Lunatic finally declared her passion for the Maniac, but he started dating another close friend. The Lunatic was crushed, but tried to hide it as best she could.

5.) Incubus - Drive
The Lunatic realized that most of her fear and terror of the Maniac dating her other friend was because other friends had betrayed her in the past and given up old friendships in favor of new and unstable love, becoming so engrossed in each other that they left their dearest friends behind. She realized, also, that she had no reason to fear this happening with the Maniac. He would never close her out. She could let go of her old fears and take control of her life.

6.) Two-Mix - White Reflection
In any friendship or relationship, there are special, sacred moments that happen quickly, but echo across the years. This moment involved a complex VCR setup and an innocent videotape of Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz.

7.) New Order - Bizarre Love Triangle
Even though the Lunatic had come to peace with the idea that her friends were dating, and the Maniac would never shut her out of his life, she wished she could tell him how much she loved him, those words that she just could not say. But she could not betray the friendship between the three of them and pursue him.

8.) Blondie - Night Wind Sent
This did not stop her from feeling that their lives were becoming more and more tangled.

9.) Duran Duran - Ordinary World
The Maniac's girlfriend decided to dissolve the relationship. The Lunatic watched as the Maniac struggled to find his way back into the solitary existence he'd known before. She decided that no matter what, she would be there for him.

10.) The Alan Parsons Project - Don't Let it Show
While the Maniac tried to regain normality, he hid his feelings very well. No stranger or classmate could have told what was wrong with him. By this time, the Lunatic could feel it in her stomach when the old pain hit him once again.

11.) Enigma - Return to Innocence
The Lunatic and the Maniac struggled to understand each other. The Lunatic was there for the Maniac. Slowly, piece by painful piece, the Maniac worked with the Lunatic to rebuild her fragile sanity into something resilient enough to take the battering of day-to-day life.

12.) Sophie B. Hawkins - As I Lay Me Down
As the Lunatic's strength of mind came back, her conviction that the Maniac was a good partner for her grew. She could not imagine life without their partnership, without him there to say the things that would make her feel all right.

13.) R.E.M. - Be Mine
At first, other priorities pre-empted the Lunatic's interest in the Maniac, but his continued presence in her life, and her continued presence in his, convinced her that she was safest with him. She longed to be there for him in the same way that he'd been there for her.

14.) Foo Fighters - Walking After You
The Maniac moved, and was prepared to lose these friends as he'd lost so many friends in the past. The Lunatic was determined to not let that happen, and promised herself and him that for so long as she had breath in her body, she would follow him, to be there for him as he'd been there for her.

It was around in the timeframe.
