Is a neat site that cunningly converts Flash Video / FLV file (YouTube video etc) to MPEG4 (AVI/MOV/MP4/MP3/3GP - take your pick) files online, so you can put the video on your phone or rip an mp3.

I think I'll start with Sean Kingston's "Beautiful Girl". Sean looks much too young to have served time back in 99, as he's only 17 now. I hope he's making it all up. But apparently Mom and Sis have both done time. Tsk tsk.

The music has a wonderfully elderly feel - I was reminded of "Stand By Me". Turns out the backing and bassline is pretty much an exact clone of Ben E King's 1961 classic.

Oh and a chorus line taken from Led Zepplin's "D'yer Maker" single from 1974 as well
