Cryptic Family Reunion: I've got a fever!

The answer to this puzzle is a list of ten thematically related words or proper names or phrases. Each of these is clued cryptically, and the theme is to be determined. Since the definition part of a cryptic clue would give away the theme, these cryptic clues use a family member (e.g., mom, sister) to stand in for the definition part of the clue. So for example, if the theme of the puzzle were chemical elements, "Sister picking at nit" would clue "tin". I hope you enjoy!

1. Aunt to give poor rating over dropping One Direction from film (3-3)
3. Mom gathered up misbehaving child (7)
4. Right on Route #2, Dad (5)
5. Mother Earth overwhelms careless one not respecting boundaries (8)
6. Uncle manipulated cadaver's spine (5,8)
7. Daughter put off taking final (8)
8. Sis dear to ailing bro (9)
9. Son to give up on pet in training (9)
10. Nephew's boss important to famous King (6,4)

the titles of classic arcade video games.

Like so:

1. Aunt to give poor rating over dropping One Direction from film (3-3) PAC-MAN = PAN ("give poor rating") around C(ine)MA ("film" = CINEMA, "One" = I in Roman numerals, "Direction" = NE)

2. Dad cut off from message of confirmation about golf (7) FROGGER = F(rom) + ROGER ("message of confirmation") containing G (“golf”)

3. Mom gathered up misbehaving child (7) TEMPEST = MET< + PEST

4. Right on Route #2, Dad (5) JOUST = JUST (“Right”) containing (r)O(ute)

5. Mother Earth overwhelms careless one not respecting boundaries (8) GALAXIAN = GAIA (“Earth”) containing LAX + (o)N(e)

7. Daughter put off taking final (8) DEFENDER = DEFER (“put off”) containing END

8. Sis dear to ailing bro (9) ASTEROIDS = SISDEARTO*

9. Son to give up on pet in training (9) CENTIPEDE = CEDE (“give up”) containing PETIN*

10. Nephew's boss important to famous King (6,4) DONKEY KONG = DON ("boss") + KEY ("important") + (king) KONG

As for the title:

As confirmed by the OP in comments, this is not a connection via 'burning up' to the Canadian rock band Arcade Fire, but is instead (of course) a reference to this 1980's song, which somehow made it to #9 on the US Billboard 'Hot 100'.

• I'm also failing to figure out the wordplay for #1, for what it's worth. Commented Oct 5, 2020 at 13:13

• @GarethMcCaughan Yep, this is correct! As far as #1, in hindsight, it would probably be clued better with "films" rather than "film" Commented Oct 5, 2020 at 13:16
• Got 'em all! Guess that one wasn't too hard...at least for a certain demographic! Any comments on the title? Commented Oct 5, 2020 at 13:18
