Fast walking music will give you the energy you need to keep up that quick pace. These songs are perfect for someone who can complete a mile in 15 to 17 minutes. Songs for this pace vary from 130 to 138 beats per minute.
Listening to music that matches your pace will help you keep that quick pace up. It is easier to match your pace to your music when your music is going as fast as you need to go!
Here is my playlist when I'm walking at this quick pace. You'll find a great variety of artists and genres, such as AC/DC, Adele, Backstreet Boys, Donna Summer and Barry Manilow. There are hits from 2013 and years past. There is something here for everyone!

If you have a smart phone, there is an app that can change called Tempo Pro Magic that will change the beats per minute of the songs already on your phone. You will want to change the beats per minute to 135 to 138 beats per minute to match your fast walking pace.
Now that you have some great tunes, you’re ready to get started! You’ll find that exercising is much more enjoyable when listening to songs that are matched to your pace. It helps you keep your pace while boosting your energy.

It's important to be able to hear cars, animals and people around you and be aware of your surroundings. So even though it is tempting to get carried away in your thoughts and your music, you should keep the music down so that you can hear what is going on around you.
