Music videos surged in popularity in the 1970s and 1980s, following the development of music based films twenty years earlier. Artists and their management always wanted more publicity because that meant more people would buy their music and so they made more money. This is why television shows such as Top of the Pops were created, to promote the artist and their music. It wasn’t long before artists began recording themselves performing their songs, to replace the live show performance, and this gradually evolved from 1975 – with Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody – into telling a separate story. The purpose of this essay is to explore in more depth why artists began making music videos and why they still do to this day.
Some research into the themes, characters and locations for my screenplay Technical Deceit. Contains some spoilers for One Hour Photo and House of Cards.
