Updated July 22, 2012: Unfortunately, the YouTube to MP3 Converter software I recommended below is no longer available. The updated version of this software comes with a ton of annoying bloatware so I can't recommend it any longer.
This speaks to one of the big problems with this blog, which is that I tend to link directly to interesting content on other websites. When those other sites move or remove their content, it makes me look like I don't know what I'm doing. The solution is to keep checking cleansheetsanddirtygirls.blogspot.com regularly and ponce on new content the moment it comes up.
Does it upset you that an obscure remix of a song that you enjoy is only available on YouTube? Do you wish you could listen to that song on an iPod that doesn't have a WiFi connection? Are you mad as hell when you try to listen to a song using YouTube on your expensive iPad only to have Apple step in and tell you that "The author of this video does not allow playback on iPad." Enough of this bullshit.
If you're a Windows 7/ Vista or XP user, head on over to Download.com and get yourself the Free YouTube to MP3 Converter.
Can we get the icon in cornflower blue?
It slices, it dices and, more importantly, when you paste the URL of a YouTube video into this program and hit a button, it spits out the audio portion of the video as an mp3 or wav file into a folder or your choosing. I've used this freeware on a few videos and it works like a champ.
I think only sock puppets could dumb this concept down more.
TL;DR: Click the "Free YouTube to MP3 Converter" link above to download a program that will convert the audio of YouTube videos to mp3 files, if you're into that sort of thing.
