Mystery Themes!

Tonight's show will feature two sets of songs, each of which has a secret theme. I'll update the playlist as we go, and listeners are invited to make guesses about what they think the theme might be. Maybe I can give a prize for anyone who's able to guess each before I announce the answer.
I'll start you off with the hint that both themes tonight are works of fiction.

Part 1:

Song Artist Album
Creep Radiohead Pablo Honey
Riches and Wonders The Mountain Goats All Hail West Texas
Baby You're a Rich Man The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour
Love and Longing stellastarr* Harmonies for the Haunted
There Is a Light that Never Goes Out The Smiths The Queen Is Dead
Drive My Car The Beatles Rubber Soul
Barrel of a Gun Guster Lost and Gone Forever

Congrats to Leo Pezzementi for being the first to guess this one.
Highlight below for the answer:

Part 2:
