Modern vocabulary not really amazing

Not so amazed by our changing language.

What is happening to our vocabulary when practically everyone insists on using the word 'amazing' to describe something which they find good? I long for the return of 'brilliant', 'wonderful', 'fantastic', 'sensational', 'great' and 'fabulous'. Take your pick from these.
