    For me, amongst many others, « air guitar » and « urge incontinence »...

    Is there a hidden correlation?
    I sure hope these phrases born the same year as me are not some kind of premonition for my own future...

    These are when Webster added them to the dictionary. All had been in use prior to the listed year. There is a link for first known use. I came up with the same 1964 words as the O.P.
