I've recently listened to an old hit by the Beach Boys and I was surprised by the lyrics where the word "excitation" is so frequently repeated. Does it really exist, perhaps as a regional term? I couldn't find it anywhere in dictionaries, which obviously list "excitement". Please, don't tell me it was coined to rhyme with "good vibrations"...
