    Yup, there a dead simple way to do it, and I use it all the time:

    Get the YouTube file first.
    Then use ffmpeg, a command line mpeg tool. Your command should look like this:

    ffmpeg -i YouTube.flv YouTube.mp3

    That's it, you are done!

    Grab the video using a YouTube video grabber. Then go to and extract the audio into an mp3 file.
