I just listened to the song carefully for the first time (though I've heard it a few times before in my life in distracting circumstances, involving a bong and a pouf…) and it sounds like The Doors, the Mamas and the Papas, and The Byrds all rolled into one -- and George Martin on the "harmonium" doesn't hurt!

I always thought of it as a proto-funk song, with the (implied) D7#9 chord, George's little bit during the bridge and Paul's bass line.
Though if you listen to the full ending on the "RockBand" version, it does sound very "psychedelic" with the droning harmonium and the little guitar flourish.
It is an interesting song, I'd love to have heard it coming together in the studio.
