Randy Newman & Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, cond. Roelof van Driesten. Rotterdam, Netherlands, 1979

Sail Away is a 1972 album by Randy Newman. In 2003, the album was ranked number 321 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

The album stands as a prime example of Newman's ability with musical satire. The title track takes the form of a pitch from a slave trader in Africa. "Political Science" foresees America making the world a better place through the nuclear annihilation of almost everyone else. "God's Song" uses gospel forms to question the idea of a benevolent creator. "He Gives Us All His Love" is a bittersweet and sparsely-arranged hymn about religious faith which may be earnest or tongue-in-cheek.

The song "Burn On" was used in the introduction to the film Major League.

Brian Wilson has said that this album profoundly affected him at the time of its release, briefly keeping him from sliding further into depression and mental illness.
