Sounds innnocent enough, if stupid, but in fact all of the links are actually of the form

http://izitracking.izimailing.com/v3/redirv2.php?email=xxxx@xxxx.com&version=4&tracking=16108

where xxxx@xxxx.com is my email address.

God alone what this actually does, apart from showing that I'm someone stupid enough to click on links from spammers, but I suspect that linking to music on myspace is fairly low on the list of priorities.

The source appears to be "MYSPACE MUSIC" <oven11@hotmail.fr> - don't know how heavily this is forged because I'm seeing it via my webmail thingy which doesn't seem to be able to show the source of the actual messages, and have no intention of downloading it further. I suspect that it's as bogus as the message.
