There are ways. If you’re on a Mac, Audio Hijack or WireTap will do this. I’m not sure how you’d do it on a PC, but it is definitely possible.

If you have QuickTime Pro, it will open a .flv file (use keepvid or something like that) and then you can Export audio-only to .mp3 or .aiff (or lots of other formats). VLC (videolan) should also be able to.

The easiest way is to copy the url of the youtube video to and select MP3 as the output format. Zamzar will automatically e-mail you the song download link once it has finished converting the audio.
