Music Videos were first materialised during the third series in 1992 as an idea by Britt Allcroft. These music videos all featured their own songs, mainly sung by children. Starting in Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure, some songs are sung by the characters, which would be the format that specials used exclusively. From 1994-2003, the songs were based on the theme tunes of a specific character, place, or type of job that the engines would do, which were both composed by television series veterans, Mike O'Donnell and Junior Campbell. Several have been released on CD as audiobooks or music albums.

After Mike and Junior left the series after twenty years, Robert Hartshorne began composing the music for the series, while Ed Welch wrote the songs, both starting from the eighth series in 2004. When Ed Welch left in 2009, Robert Hartshorne was left to compose the songs on his own. However, in 2011, Peter Hartshorne, Robert's son, helped him score Day of the Diesels. The Hartshornes left after their contracts ended in 2015 and Chris Renshaw and Oliver Davis took over as composers. Steve D'Angelo and his company Eggplant LF compose, write and produce songs for television series while Davis composes and produces songs for the specials.

The music videos are known for using clips from the series along with deleted scenes which would not be seen in the episodes themselves. Some music videos have specially-shot footage, which would only happen if the song did not have the required clips from the archives.
