It's time to play ... what's the next word!

It's cute, but not reliable. According to the site, the term "doo wop" was first used in 1965. Yet, there's this from Wikipedia, which includes citations:
"Although the musical style originated in the late 1940s and was very popular in the 1950s, the term "doo-wop" itself did not appear in print until 1961, when it was used in reference to the Marcels' song, "Blue Moon", in The Chicago Defender, just as the style's vogue was nearing its end. Though the name was attributed to radio disc jockey Gus Gossert, he did not accept credit, stating that "doo-wop" was already in use in California to categorize the music."
So, yeah. It's BS. But a site like that is just supposed to be fun, not really informative, right?

In my year of 1947 some of the new words were...
That is according to Merriam-Webster
"Slings and arrows" attributed to 1963, but didn't Shakespeare write those words in Hamlet?

"Win-win miniskirt soft-core gigawatt porn"
Its actually probably a thing.
I did a reverse engine search for the word "dopamine" and got the year 1959. Going off of that list, my selection for the word next in the sequence would be ... MONKEYPOX!!
Although I was also tempted by Oral Sex, Dopamine, Sock Puppet, and Cloud Nine.
Yeah, 1957 was earlier than I expected for some of these. Also:
I got All-terrain Vehicle, Country-Rock, Crab Rangoon, Fingerpicking, Hinky, Meritocracy, Rockabilly, and Zilch
