"The Whale" is an instrumental by the Electric Light Orchestra.
The song is track 15 from their hugely successful 1977 double LP Out of the Blue. The song was the B-side of their United States single "It's Over" in 1978 and on a remastered version on their box set compilation Flashback.
The song features the keyboard talents of Richard Tandy prominently, as well as the usual orchestration conducted by Louis Clark. Composer Jeff Lynne was moved to write the instrumental piece after watching a documentary on the killing of whales, similar to Jon Anderson's penning of Don't Kill the Whale in 1977.
In the 1980s and early 1990s, a portion of the song was featured during the nightly sign-off on Toronto television station CFTO-TV.
