Private Gaia 5: The Temptations of Clarisse

Genre: Adult

This is Detroit

right around 1958.

And that was me right there,

Otis Williams,

17 and about to burst.

J7 Oh, I can't help it J7

J7 I can't help it .0

J7 I can't help it J7

J7 I just can't help it fl

Back then there were mainly two

choices for a young man like me:

The assembly line or music.

I know now that I was destined

for the latter.

What I didn't know was that I was living in

the city soon to be known to the world--.

As the birthplace

of Motown Records.

I remember it

like it was yesterday,

The exact moment that singing became

the most important thing in my life.

Al! Al!


Otis! Up here!

Hurry up, man!

Hey, you're late. You already

missed The Chantels.

Let's give a big Detroit welcome

to The Cadillacs!

J1 Now they often call me Speedoo

but my real name is Mister III

J1 Now they often call me Speedoo

but my real name is Mister III

IJ Don't come meetin'

bandit fellas III

J1 and takin'

other folks' girls III

J1 Well, some, they call me Joe

some, they call me Moe II

D But just remember Speedoo

is the name that people show JII

JII Well, now they often

call me Speedoo III

J1 Bu! my real name is Mister J1


J1 Well, now some

they call me Moe II

D Some, they ca me Joe D

D But just remember Speedoo

JII Well, now they often

call me Speedoo III

J1 Bu! my real name is mister J1

I1 Now they gotta

call me Speedoo II

IJ till they call up

makin' pretty girls III

I want this one here.

The Tony Curtis?

Oh, no, no.

Oh, D. A. That's the one.

I think with your head shape,

you'd want the New Yorker.

The Tony Curtis it is.

Man, this stuff burns!


Now, the longer you keep that on

your hair, the straighter it'll get.



And I thought y'all were singers.


Oh! Ooh!


Mama, where are you?

Wherever there's

work to be clone.

Ooh! Ooh, you did it!

- Oh.

- Y-you like it?

I'll let you know.


Look at your head!

I'm home. Look at this place!

Allan, what'd I tell you about leaving

your toys all around this house?

Boy, what the hell

did you do?

Looks like he lost a bet.

It's called a process, Edgar.

I know what it's called- I'm just wondering

what he was thinking when he got it.

Well... I like it.

Just decided.

Come on. Sit down.

HeJp me. And this better not

be about that singin ' mess.

I kiss butt to get him an interview

for the assembly line,

And this is the thanks I get.

I'm thankful.

If you were, you'd go

and wash that out right now.

Mama, tell him

it don't wash out.

- Then shave it off!

- Man!

Honey, all the kids are wearin'

these styles these days.

Not any kids of mine. And as long as he's

livin' under my roof and eatin' my food,

he'll be livin' by my rules.

Now that could be changed.

Where are you goin'?

I tell you where I ain't goin'. I ain't

goin' to work on some damn assembly line.

That's for damn sure.


Show respect.

I'm sorry, y'all.

Especially you, Edgar.

You always done me right.

But I'm a singer now.

That's just the way it is.

Let's say grace.

J1 Oh, what a night J1

J1 I'm going to love you, dear J1

J1 Oh, what a night J1

J1 I'm going to hold you, dear J1

J1 Oh, what a night J1

I! I'm going to kiss you, dear I!

I! That's why I!

III I love you so J7

J1 That JII

III I won't forget III

JII Ooh, no J3 IJ All those

things you have told to me IJ

J1 I won't forget 'em, baby

oh, no, no, no, no J1

D Things 'm my heart D

J7 Won't let me forget

your love J7

1-7 Your love J7

D Oh-oh-oh-oh what a night III

IJ Oh, oh, I wonder

wonder, wonder, wonder J1
