    Probably not Pink Floyd, even sounds familiar but I can't place it.

    Edit: Could also fit into "Starship Trooper" by Yes.

    'Fraid not. The artist was big in the 80's and this was released in the middle of that decade.

    Hint #2: it shares a translated title with a French horror film from the 60's.

    Chord progressions are sometimes tough to pick for me but based on your hint I’m guessing Eyes Without a Face - Billy Idol.

    He said the title of the song shares a translated name with a French horror film. As a kid I was a huge fan of horror movies and a long time subscriber to Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine so I've got a fairly deep pool of useless horror movie knowledge.

    With that hint, I listened to the Billy Idol tune and the progression he played sounds like the keys of the song, thus my guess.

    Based on your answer I need to declare you the winner. :):thumb:
    If you listen closely, Stevens is playing the Em once each measure with the key bang when the song starts, then follows their pattern in the first verse, which is what I was playing here.

    Thanks. I assumed he must be following the keys and is buried a bit in the mix. Great song choice. It's been an earworm for most of the morning.
