Youtube-only music that's awesome?

I really liked this. Please point me to other musical things on youtube, or other video sites, that aren't available anywhere else.

The key is that they should work and be great songs without any video at all. (I hope to add the audio tracks, sans video, to my music collection.)

Skank in Bed, also has a great section in the middle where he says "riddim, come forward"

I'm not sure this is exactly what you're looking for, but Ronald Jenkees posts a bunch of the stuff he's working on to YouTube and nowhere else (that I know of). Try
Fast Piano Song - pretty much what it sounds like
Throwing Fire - Synth Pop

Fret Killer's YouTube channel is awesome (acoustic guitar, voice, harmonica), and the music is not available anywhere else - in fact the guy posts anonymously.

I came in here to say Ronald Jenkees as well. Although it's not just Youtube only, you can buy his music on iTunes or on CD from his site.

Have you seen Kutiman's "Thru-You"?

Julia Nunes does lot of great stuff on the ukulele. Her CD's can be had here.

I'll periodically get enthusiastic about cover songs on youtube: Pokemon Metroid Toxic (covered by a girl with a ukulele, of course) I kissed a girl (again, on uke). There's a gazillion covers of "Hey Ya", and who knows how many renditions of Rihanna's 'Umbrella'.

I've been listening to this song a lot lately:
