Blanket for a Sail is another one of Harry's lullabies for grownups. The gentle lesson of the song asks one to use one's heart and Faith to navigate the "seven seas" AKA life. Blanket for a Sail, like the music to the film Popeye, is richly orchestrated. Nilsson excelled at songs like this -- kind parables for a not-so-kind world.
