intoxicated by illicit drugs. An Ameri-can term popular in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It was this sense that inspired the title of the fourth LP by the seminal New York rock group The Velvet Underground in 1970.
This term, formerly slang, is now a common colloquialism.
in the mood for sex or sexually aroused. The term, which refers to males only, is part of the language of adoles-cents in use in the later 1990s and was included in Just Seventeen magazine's 'lingo of lurve' in August 1996.
