He's qualified.

Last night I tuned into KEXP‘s “The Roadhouse,” a 3-hour show of American soul and blues music. (Anyone who knows me well knows that my desert island music selection would mainly consist of soul and blues.) It’s my favorite radio show, and I fell in love with Jimmy Hughes’ “I’m Qualified.” I found myself singing along with the backup singers: “I’m qualified de-de-li-de-li-de.” It’s a classic example of a rhythm & blues waltz, with three danceable beats per measure. Listen here, and I think you’ll love it as much as I do. Thanks, KEXP, for reminding me of this lost soul classic. xo, m
