Shock, horror, Abba costumes tax avoidance scam

Marginal Revolution is linking to a story from the Guardian about the flamboyant costumes that Abba  in their pomp wore [there's something terribly Germanic about that sentence (ed.)]. Apparently they were tax deductible and er, that's it... 

I suppose the right response is  Money, Money, Money... but it's much more enjoyable to listen to Super Trouper, which is surely a contender for the title of most perfect pop song ever. Anyone who can get away with the lines:

I was sick and tired of everything
When I called you last night from Glasgow
All I do is eat and sleep and sing
Wishing every show was the last show

is a genius and demonstrates complete mastery of the medium. This live version is also rather charming, though the full range of harmonies is missing.
