Cool, Swell, Groovy, Hip, Outasite Song Lyrics

 

Every new wave of young folks brings its own trendy slang into its everyday language.  Then we grow up and those words get replaced and most of them are hardly, if ever, used again.  

 

Keeping it upbeat here... think of all the words that were used once for people, things, or things that we did that we thought were good, excellent, super, fun, "with it,"  and great

 

Examples that are no longer in common usage, no particular time-period order (there are lots more)

 

neat, hip, keen, righteous, gnarly, groovy, swell, sweet, bangin' , phat, bad, nifty, far-out, boss, the bomb... etc. "cool" might even be in there, but that one has some staying power.

 

How many rock and pop songs can we come up with that have happy, trendy slang terms in the title or lyrics that we don't use any more?

John at the bar is a friend mine, he gets me my drinks for free, and he's quick with a joke or to light up my smoke, but there's some place that he'd rather be.   Piano Man - billy Joel
