Music videos are meant to help make songs a lot more popular; whether or not they do what they're intended is another story. Sometimes music videos tell the story of the song, and other times they have nothing to do with the lyrics. While understanding the vision of the video is nice, it's not always necessary if the song is catchy.
In the start, music videos weren't called as they are now, mainly because they were very different from what we know today. There were talkies, visual jukeboxes, music clips and musical movies. Musical television didn't really begin until the mid '70s, and it really took off since then. Today, music videos are a big part of the entertainment world. Not only are they on TV, but they're also on websites like YouTube, which records the number of times each video has been watched - which could make or break the song.
