Literal: Groovy is where the far out goes, man!

Colloquial: It's like, you know, so far out that it's in, and so like, in, you know, that it's far out, you dig? Like, it's so hot that it's cool, and it's so cool that it's hot! It like, makes you like to say like. I mean, it'll blow your mind, man!
Hey, did you ever like, blow your mind, man? Try it, you'll like it! No way, man, you don't gotta get stoned to blow you mind. Just look at your hand, will you? No, I mean like really look at it. Like, you know it's been on your arm since forever, but you never really look at it. Check it out! It's so far out that it's like, groovy man!

Delightful, awesome.

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.
