This works even if the "Download" link doesn't work or isn't available. It's really cool once you know this hack.
First, visit the MySpace page with the music on it. Play a track that you want, then wait until about halfway through the song. This is so that the mp3 file is downloaded completely before you try to copy it. You can tell if it has downloaded a certain track by looking at your internet connection icon in the 'system tray'. (The bottom right of your screen should have a little icon with two computer screens. If they are not blinking then the download is done.)
Now, to get to where they have been downloaded to, type this in Internet Explorer's address bar (where it says http://..... at the top of the screen):
%USERPROFILE%/Local Settings/Temporary Internet Files
If you have IE6 then the folder will open in the same window. If you have IE7 then it will open in a new window (it's a security feature, apparently).
Now, once you're in there, the music you played will be in mp3 files. To find them easily, click any white space in the folder, then on your keyboard, just type "std" (for some reason all the music you play on MySpace starts with that). It will skip down to the music file(s).
Then all you have to do is select each one and copy it to your My Documents or Desktop or wherever. Then you can change the name of each file to whatever you want. Now it's your for free! Happy listening!
Note: You can also do this for other sites with Flash and music. I wrote a blog a little while ago with more specific details for the MediEvil Resurrection website as an example:
You can download the complete game soundtrack off the website. I did this by emptying my Internet Explorer temporary files first, then visiting the website and playing all the tracks on the "Audio" button - not switching tracks until each of them had finished loading/downloading. Then, once each track was finished, I simply browsed to my IE temp folder and copied the MP3 music files which Flash saved in there. This also allowed me to get the URLs from each MP3's Properties when it was still in the Temp folder, e.g. http://fp.scea.com/PSP/Games/MediEvil_Resurrection/OGS/music/Cemetery_Hill.mp3
