Back in November, I mentioned that US #12 received a copyright notice with info that wasn't sufficient enough to ID the song. Thanks to google, I was finally able to track it down today. The piece is indeed called "The Right Stuff" (or, more accurately, "The Right Stuff (alt mix)"), and it's contained on a CD from the Parry Music Library. Parry is a Canadian production music firm that was founded in 1974 (thanks, discogs!), making this—I believe—the first Canadian song identified on this site. I have no idea why the Parry connection to this track failed to come up when I was searching last year. As an aside, the "play" links on the Parry Music website don't work, so I've linked to the BMG Music website instead.
The Right Stuff was composed by Tom Jenkins & Barry Schleifer. Jenkins has a long history in the audio business with all sorts of pop-music acts, movie soundtracks, and stage productions. I can't find much info on Schleifer, but he at least has an imdb page.
