What makes "Ride Captain Ride" so different?

The song "Ride Captain Ride"
has been in heavy rotation around my house lately. There's something about this song that seems . . . different
. I can't quite put my finger on it because I'm not a musician myself. I am not fluent in the language of chords and notes and that sort of thing. That said, I can't help but notice that this seems to stand apart from traditional North American pop/rock music. What distinguishes this song, if anything? You need not explain this to me Like I'm Five (as they put it on another webiste) but please be aware that I don't have a music-theory background.
Many thanks in advance.
