Did somebody say Mocember?

It’s lush and beautiful and it’s mine. It’s precious to me. I could be sporting “Evenin’ Guv” until Mopril or Moly.

Beginning today, your opinion can be heard around the globe in the straw poll that will have immediate ramifications. I speak, of course, of Movember 2015: What style will Scott Grow campaign.

Movember is a chance for men and hirsute women to grow wild in support of cancer blah blah blah. Truthfully, it’s really about creating an outlandish look that makes women and children hide, and facial hair aficionados rejoice.

This year I’m putting four looks on the table. The winning style will grow then for 30 days, with weekly photographic updates.

Style 1:
The Evenin’ Guv’nor!

Style 2:
The Evil Universe Scott

Style 3:
The Klingon Douchebag

Style 4:
The Horseshoe

Hallelujah

Cohen (1984):

Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Chorus.

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah.

Chorus.

You say I took the name in vain
I don’t even know the name
But if I did, well really, what’s it to you?
There’s a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn’t matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Chorus.

I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Chorus.
Chorus.

Buckley (1994):

Well I heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this:
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Chorus.

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Chorus.

Baby I’ve been here before
I’ve seen this room and I’ve walked this floor (you know)
I used to live alone before I knew ya
And I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Chorus.

There was a time when you let me know
What’s really going on below
But now you never show that to me, do ya?
But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Chorus.

Maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
And it’s not a cry that you hear at night
It’s not somebody who’s seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Chorus.
Chorus.

Laing (2015):

I always thought I’d do much better, friends. 
But then love became just a word 
marked by that dizzy waltzing mousey. 
So, now I sit alone in the dark each night 
putting things to right as best I might, 
A baffled king composing Hallelujah.

Chorus.

Proof was needed to fight the faithed 
Life all alone, tied to this chair 
Hoping to shoot straight if they outdrew me 
I received in-stead a lesson in dread 
I guess they’ll say now 
Beauty and the moonlight never deceived me 

Chorus.

It wasn’t enough, but I did my best 
I couldn’t pay, so I tried to steal 
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t speak to fool you. 
And even though it all went wrong 
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song 
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah 

Chorus.
Chorus.
