Courtly Love

The subject of many of the troubadour songs written and sung during the middle ages concerned the inaccessibility of a noble lady to a person not of her class. I find it amusing that we now live in a time where it is the troubadours themselves who are inaccessible to most people, even people who have a considerable amount of money. Indeed, the sign for having "made it" in the world of "high society" (at least that's what it used to be called) is to be able to hobnob with celebrity musicians.
