Space Race on Wikipedia

"Space Race" is an instrumental track by Billy Preston, released as a single in 1973 on the A&M label. The single -- a sequel to his 1972 hit, "Outa-Space" -- hit number one on the R&B chart for one week and number four on the Pop Singles chart.[1] It also became a gold record. The instrumental proved popular enough that the musical variety show American Bandstand used it as the song for its mid-broadcast break from the mid-1970s until the show completed its run in 1989.[2] The song can be heard in a party scene in the 1979 film When a Stranger Calls.
