    Many websites offer this service ..

    Here is one example :-

    Just close the pop-up window that opens when you click "convert"
    And then click on "download" for the mp3

    Hope that helps

    AndyPix's suggestion will probably suit you, but just to add an alternative, in case you're likely to use it more often, there are a variety of download managers that can help with it.

    There may be better options, but I use , and once installed is very simple to use. Just copy the link & it will split the sound and video tracks, so it's easy to download just the audio if that's all you want.
