The wonderful command line utility 'youtube-dl' is capable of this.

youtube-dl -x --audio-format mp3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uniqueyoutubeid

It can output to aac, vorbis, wav etc too.


Install for Windows users looks a bit different to Linux, this guide looks like it should help:

Are you just looking for a song or to do regularly? Do you prefer lossless?

I am on a Mac, and use the MacX YouTube Downloader:

I use a range of web-based downloaders that come and go (probably as youtube blocks them). Safer than EXEs - although they are mostly fronts for sites that want your to download their EXE to do the same job .. I never do. I always have a pile of such sites bookmarked, and switch between them if one disappears or doesn't work on a particular day. All do MP4 download, not all do MP3 (but there are convertors, incl Audacity). Occasionally a youtube channel seems to use youtube capabilities to block downloading of copyrighted material, but a few other things can get around that (eg Videodownload Helper add-on for Firefox).
Here's one site that does direct youtube to MP3 ... no guarantees ;)

4K Video Downloader is pretty good. Sometimes it doesn’t work though and it’s cool to see some alternatives!

I suppose you've already found one given the date of this post, but I'm letting this here in case anyone's looking for it. I edit videos for a living, and mostly I use this converter. It doesn't have bugs or anything similar. Works fast, and it's easy. I've used many before I found this one, and also spent lots of money on them. Guess what, it wasn't worth it, as this converter has everything I need to edit my videos. Hopefully, I helped you, if not, maybe the next person that's reading this :)
