It's the subtle change of the bass notes that does it in this one: chords are repeated, but with different bass notes, giving the song its clustered and subtly shifting feeling. Chord symbols are repeated if it's a whole bar, noted once if it's half a bar (so two beats per symbol). If half a bar contains two chords, there's a "-" between them. Just prior to the instrumental break you've got this sublime chord (C9-C11), which really lifts the whole thing up!
