"Long distance running is 90% mental and the other half is physical." - Rich Davis 
While running, if you want to listen to songs, it is imperative that you listen to tracks which are fast and will pump you up. Listening to slow, soft songs might not go with the jog. If you ask me, there would be one set for men and another for women, but both need to be really fast and loud. While listening to fast songs, the brain tunes in with the speed of the song and somehow energizes the body to run a lot faster. No wonder, they don't play songs, like 'Are You Lonesome Tonight' in gyms! All you need are fast beats that will force your feet to move.
