Captain Starr Toronto, Ontario

Venturing into a unique soundscape, the Captain Starr sound can best be described as a blend of hard rock, funk, and groove elements, coupled with melodic vocal hooks. This 3-piece outfit was formed in mid-2005 by guitarist/vocalist Jonny Strides and soon found solidarity with bassist Joey Bauman, and drummer Matt Durante. Captain Starr has been laying down the goodness ever since. ... more

Track Name: Dance Champion (Got The Funkies)
Heyo, I got a dance fire on my feet
Heyo, let’s put this sucker out!
Take off my steel toe boots
Tying up my dancing shoes
Getting up in my skin tight suit yeah
Jump in my ‘86 Chevy
Flying down the roadway baby
Coming up to the club little lady
Check it out

I’m the one who’s got the funkies
And I’m dancing like a king on cocaine
Now I’m the one who’s got the ladies
My moves have got them going crazy

Heyo, I see you checking out my skills
Heyo, I see you lookin... but you better be looking out!
Running man, you got that right
Worm, I’m wormin’ it tight
Turn up the heat on a Monday night yeah
Drinking the juice like a west coast rapper
Keeping it loose like a chiropractor
Don’t mean to be rude but shut your yapper
Lookie here

I’m the one who’s got the funkies
And I’m dancing like a king on cocaine
Yeah I’m the one who’s got the ladies
My moves have got them going crazy

You think you want some
Hah, you ‘aint got it
You think you need some
You ‘aint got it boy!

You wanna know my secret?
Too bad I ‘aint gonna tell it
There’s no benefit (to me)
You dudes you looking so angry
Angry that I’m taking all the ladies
Too bad I’m the one with the funkies

I’m the one who’s got the funkies
And I’m dancing like a king on cocaine
Now I’m the one who’s got your lady
Cause I’ve got the market on cool
Track Name: Phunky Phatty
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Danger Zone
Revvin’ up your engine
Listen to her howlin’ roar
Metal under tension
Beggin you to touch and go

Highway to the Danger Zone
Ride into the Danger Zone

Heading into twilight
Spreading out her wings tonight
She’s got you jumping off the deck
And shoving into overdrive

Highway to the Danger Zone
I’ll take you right into the Danger Zone

They’ll never say hello to you
'til you get it on the red line overload
You got to do what you can do
'til you get it up as high as you can go

Highway to the Danger Zone
Ride into the Danger Zone
Highway to the Danger Zone
Ride into the Danger Zone
Track Name: Who Da Man?!
First time I saw you
Walk into the room
I read you like a book
I sank the hook
(I said)
Lose those tight clothes
‘cause I said you can
You never knew I’d simplify your plan

Who da man? Who da man?
I would have to say me
Every night, every night
My lust you are relieving
Lay me down, lay me down
Hit ya with the disease
In flight through the night

Reading your face
You know what you got
Deep below the epiderm
I hit the spot
(Look out)
You think it’s over
But I’ve just begun
Now you know I’ve got the mighty gun

Who da man? Who da man?
I would have to say me
Every night, every night
My lust you are relieving
Lay me down, lay me down
Hit ya with the disease
In flight through the night

Pull you under
Make you wonder
Below (where you like to go)

Heat colliding
The levels rising
So high

You da man! You da man!
I would have to agree
Every night, every night
My lust you are relieving
Lay me down, lay me down
Smack you with the disease oh no
In flight through the night

You da man! You da man!
Yes I am, yes I am, you got it
Every night, every night
My lust you are relieving
Lay me down, lay me down
Now you got the disease
In flight through the night
