Your well-learned politesse

Yesterday I listened to Sympathy for the Devil by the Rolling Stones. I'd previously heard bits of it, mainly the part that Weird Al sang in "Hot Rocks Polka", but this was the first time I'd heard the whole song all the way through. After that, the song A Good Idea at the Time by OK Go, with its references to "wealth" and "taste", "well-learned politesse", St. Petersburg and Pilate (oh, and Anastasia) suddenly made a lot more sense!
