There are great amazing songs out there, but sometimes there are songs that you think you love but when you hear them without the accompanying movies you realize what you really love is the music video. For me, the one that always comes to mind is the video for Do the Evolution by Pearl Jam. I'm not really a Pearl Jam fan, and this is really the only song of theirs that really sticks with me, and while the song is decent the main reason its burned in my brain is the amazing animation. Strangely enough it was done by Todd McFarlane. So a band I'm entirely ambivalent about and a cartoonist I loath somehow collaborated to create one of my all time favorite videos.

I really love Teardrop as a song anyways, but the video really ratchets up the song's intensity.

Danger High Voltage is another song that is already great on its own but god damn do I love the video

On the other hand, I don't really like Gay Bar all that much... except when George Bush is singing it to Tony Blair

And the video for Party Rockers is ok, but the unofficial North Korean version is a thing of wonder

This is a recent music video that I like, if for the sheer randomness of seeing Gary Numan in a mall:

I was thinking about Lady Gaga and how she fits the theme of this thread, but then I remembered that even more than Gaga the quintisential song that you only love because of its video is Knights of Cydonia by Muse.

Oh you know what a big one is? Shock the Monkey, Peter Gabriel.
I heard it and thought it was just a weird song with goofy lyrics...then I saw him in his business suit and the white incarnation with with made up face and the sinister/earnest way he was lip syncing and, that was a big inspirational milestone in my life that resonates today and it made me like the song more.
