1. A system comprising:
an electronic device comprising audio processing circuitry, pace tracking circuitry, and positioning circuitry, wherein:
said pace tracking circuitry is operable to select songs to be processed for playback by said audio processing circuitry;
said pace tracking circuitry controls said song selection based on position data generated by said positioning circuitry, a desired playback tempo of said one or more songs, and whether the songs are locally-stored or network-accessible, wherein network-accessible songs are selected with a tempo faster than said desired tempo and locally-stored songs are selected with a tempo at, above, or below said desired tempo; and
said pace tracking circuitry adjusts a tempo of said selected song without affecting pitch of said selected song.
