With my computer dying, I tried to do my best to pair each song to what mile I might be on – assuming an 8 minute per mile pace.  I started with the slower songs first and worked my way up, to ensure that I don’t start off too fast.  I also made sure I had a good song around mile 6 for the hill, and enjoyable music for the finish.
