“Thor: Love and Thunder and Earworms”

Ever since the first trailer to Taika’s latest take on Thor I cannot get this damned tune out of my head, one of three GNR tunes in the tale.

A fourth Guns N’Roses tune turns up in the open to Apple TV’s “Black Bird.” A band having another moment?

I remember when this tune was new, how Mickey Mouse it seemed in light of the classic rock era that preceded it. But it’s terribly touching emotional shorthand in the trailers and the movie.

Nah, we don’t believe the camera tricks that put petite Natalie Portman in the frame with Man Mountain Oz Chris Hemsworth. But the tune resonates in a sort of love long lost but refound way.

This version? No Axl? No prob. It’s Slash’s tune anyway.
