Sail Away is a 1972 album by Randy Newman. The album is an example of Newman's 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. "He Gives Us All His Love" is a bittersweet and sparsely arranged hymn about religious faith which sounds earnest but is almost certainly deeply bitter satire.

The song "Burn On," a reference to the Cuyahoga River fire near Cleveland in 1969, 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. The album was reissued by Rhino Records in 2002, with several previously unreleased bonus tracks. In 2003, the album was ranked number 321 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
