The term originated in the 1920s among early jazz musicians as their music was recorded in grooves on a record. It became most popular in the 1950s, and fell from favor by the mid 1960s.
Bird lay down some groovy riffs, man.
very cool(a 60s and 70s catchphrase)
Man, that's some groovy music.
First of all i would like to point out that anyone who says that groovy is old and uncool is completely wrong they are the people who stopped using the word groovy because they were not groovy themselves and still arent!!. Groovy is a wrongly unused and seemingly uncool word which is infact the best word in the history of the whole world ever!! the word groovy describes something cool, great, amazing and basically anything good... it needs a revival people!!dont listen to those assholes who tell you what to say!! use the word groovy!!get groovy!!
guy 1 (the groovy one):hey dude this tshirt is groovy dont you think??
guy 2 (the un groovy one):What are you talking about dude?? groovy?? thats just a wierd word your so uncool... FREAK!
guy 1 (the groovy one):no your the one who is not GROOVY you think groovy is an uncool word?? thats because your not groovy your a foooooooooooooool!!
to be in the groove..to be cool
man!!that chick is really groovy
"The party was really groovy." = "The party was really cool."
